North Korea is one of the most isolated countries in the world, and many aspects of daily life in the country are surrounded by mystery and misinformation. Personal technology has made its way to Pyongyang in a big way over the last two years, with tablets and smart phones now ubiquitous around the city. That's not to say that these technologies resemble or are used for the same purposes we might expect.
This session will offer insights into the state of technology in Pyongyang, take stock of how our technology ecosystem lends itself to adaptation, and plot a strategy for better dissemination and fact checking of knowledge about technology in North Korea.
