North Korea Surfing the Intranet
FILE - In this Jan. 8, 2013 file photo, a North Korean student works at a computer terminal inside a computer lab at Kim Il Sung University in Pyongyang, North Korea, during a tour by Executive Chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt. North Korea is literally off the charts regarding Internet freedoms. There essentially aren’t any. But the country is increasingly online. Though it deliberately and meticulously keeps its people isolated and in the dark about the outside world, it knows it must enter the information age to survive in the global economy.
