Technology, Democracy A Potent Mix In South Korea
from the when-your-president-knows-HTML... dept
A very interesting article about how democracy and widespread broadband adoption in South Korea has impacted the country. Apparently, there’s an online news site there that has tremendous impact on the politics of the country, and people seem proud of the fact that the country’s president is the “first world president who knows HTML”. With all the recent articles about how governments can use the internet to keep control over their populations, this is a good story showing the other side of the coin.
