North Korean Intranet

Google’s Eric Schmidt arrives in North Korea. This is the “internet” he’ll find there….

What he will actually find is a North Korean nation-wide intranet

  1. I love your blog, I find it fascinating. I wonder what the North Korean Olympic team thought about London 2012 and how the ‘real world’ works…and what they told their friends and family when they got home…or maybe I am being naïve…

    • I haven’t been to the DPRK since the Olympics (went to Iran on my last vacation), but I’m sure they made their country proud – country to popular belief they wouldn’t have been punished for losing, only if they had acted in a dishonorable way. Check out the film Game of Their Lives – tells about the North Korean football team that made it to the World Cup finals, it was back in the 60’s but might give some insight as to what they experienced in the last Olympics.
