"Kim Jong Il: 'I'm an Internet expert'"

Time to pack it in and open that fruit stand, I guess...

Well, given the likely spread of the Internet in North Korea, it wouldn't be that difficult to become an expert... Maybe they should send Al Gore over there to analyze the situation.

(OT: in the city where I live there's a North Korean diplomatic representation, who have a glass display box in their otherwise very solid fence which contains little photo exhibitions on the country and the Kims, complete with texts. The building feels like it's in a pre-1989 time warp).

I'd be an "expert" too if I were the only person in my country to have true Internet access.

Kim reportedly asked former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright for her e-mail address when she visited Pyongyang in 2000.

I dare say that makes him an expert :)

Have you ever checked out the North Korea Website.

[korea-dpr.com ]

At first I thought it was a parody site, and I used to complain to the BBC for listing it as an official site, but they have told me its the real thing.

Now you know what it would be like if Stalin was a web designer :)

The official website reminded me of my visit to North Korea in late 70's. Nothing seems to have changed..Still stuck in the 70's. Now this is what we call progress.

"The leaders are the Sun of the nation and mankind" is specially humbling. ;-)

lgn1, somebody suggested he is almost the only internet expert in the country (and his barber).

In that case, can we conclude that he designed that site?
