Google's chairman in North Korea (2)

Steven Haggard of the Peterson Institute published a blog post that adds interesting detail to my short post earlier about Google's chairman Eric Schmidt visiting North Korea.   Among the most interesting details is that Schmidt and his Google colleague Jared Cohen, Director of Google Ideas, are writing a book called "The New Digital Age," which is due out in April.
This morning I happened to see the video below on television news.   It proves that there are a few people in North Korea who, at least on special occasions, actually use Google to access and search the internet.   From all available evidence, the number of people who can do this is very, very few indeed, but it provides a fascinating glimpse into the North Korea visit by Google's chairman.
