Sophie Schmidt on North Korea

Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, recently visited North Korea with Bill Richardson to discuss the concept of Internet freedom.  His daughter tagged along and wrote a great post with her perspectives on the visit to the Hermit Kingdom.

Best quote:  "it's like The Truman Show, at country scale."  With few exceptions, even the most opulent buildings are unheated in the midst of a cold and nasty winter. The honored guests could see their breath, inside.  I guess the upside to this is that electronic equipment likes cooler temperatures.
