North Korea: The Subversive possibilities of Connectivity
Wow. Powerful post and pictures of an internet cafe inside North Korea over at the Daily NK. It is, of course, only connected to other computers inside North Korea. Strict control of the internet is an important part of authoritarian efforts there, and presumably elsewhere. Just seeing these photos and imagining the circumstances is a powerful reminder of the importance of free flowing information.
