eldavojohn writes “What an auspicious day for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea! To commemorate the 65th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea, North Korea will no longer depend on Chinese national internet service to reach the outside world — they have their own connection and are hosting sites like the state run media. The article mentions that about a thousand websites are coming online, including services like Skype and Twitter. From where I sit in the United States, I can’t seem to get any .kp TLD sites to resolve, but the news is promising if in fact it will bring more information to the information-starved masses of North Korea.”
