0059 Information Cul de Sac

May 30, 2012, 03:07 PM, South Hamgyong, North Korea

There is no internet access in North Korea. Okay. It’s true: this is partly because so few people even have electricity, but it’s mostly because information is so strictly controlled here in the most reclusive of countries. There is an intranet – North Korean computers that connect with other North Korean computers, but as for outside access: not readily available, even though it is said that Kim Jong Il once asked for Madeline Albright’s email address. It has been suggested that North Korea has a “comprehensive official fantasy worldview” which even the smallest of outside information leaks could easily destroy. And so, instead of the information superhighway, North Korea has the information cul de sac. #ceas #hacker #NorthKorea #tsutsui
