I was thinking just the other day about how great it would be to do some sort of crowdfunded operation where you make hundreds of thousands of USB keys with Liberte Linux or some similar setup, then covertly distribute them in places like north korea.

Nothing like getting shot at... And only in pyongyang is there wifi. Heavily monitored by the government.

Hmm... What kind of cell phone coverage infrastructure do they have? I suppose distributing satellite-internet-enabled devices would be prohibitively costly...

Still, there should be some sort of "save the koreans by giving them internet access" thing going on

A properly secured wallet with bitcoin is in my opinion the safest, most secure, best all-around bet for holding wealth at this moment in history. Go ahead, call me crazy. They've been calling me crazy since 2013.

That actually would be a good idea, maybe do one for multiple local rebel groups. Would be somewhat hard to smuggle in, especially if you wanted to direct it inside NK.

Does anyone know what percentage of the North Korean population has access to broadband internet? 

Probably, only the elite can have Internet access.

Only the ruling class, actually.  Smiley Cheesy

My only knowledge of North Korea is that they want to bomb the US.
AND the citizens inhabiting in there are not allowed any sources of news other than just in North Korea, no internet.

Leaving the best to yourself, eh?

If North Korea was smart they would buy as much Bitcoin as possible.  Their currency is not worth much.

Also, they will not be able to counterfeit the new US $100 bills very easily:

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/2013/1008/New-100-bill-why-North-Korea-won-t-be-very-happy-video


I was hoping Kim Jong-Un, as a fan of Rodman (he at least likes some American sports!)  would embrace capitalism and create a more democratic society.  I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree, unfortunately.

They drop Bibles using helium filled ballons.  I am sure that USB keys could be distributed the same way.

The only problem:  Who actually even has computers there??? They would not even know what a USB stick is.  Then the propaganda would say that the devices were small bombs from the US or something.  Wink

North Korea has been voted the most popular country in the world.

So please tell me, how do you Bitcoin people like North Korea?

Sincerely,
Supreme Leader of Democratic People's Republic of Korea
Kim Jong Un

The leaders of the US have great regard for North Korea as they are trying to emulate your country all the time.

That's pretty much the same line of thought I had... Which led me to thinking of smartphones with an internet connection of some sort.

Check out the mock North Korean documentary "Propaganda!".

The premise is that Western civilised culture is weird and stifling, creating neurotic and despondent consumers who are blinded to the criminal behaviour of their governments through heavily propagandised newsmedia.

It's weird how our opinion of North Korea is basically the same, except you invert "neurotic and despondent consumers" to "jingoistic and compliant slaveworkers".

I assume it has subs in the korean parts, right?

I've always found North Korea's propaganda fascinating, like this one:

Wow.  I love how on the Youtube clip the background music is "We are the World."  Such happy music as they show America being blown up.

We can watch the entire made up documentary here: http://propagandafilm.net/

I am still not sure what to think of the film.  I guess it was not really done in North Korea but by a guy from New Zealand.  Does he really think America is that bad or is it just Satire?  I personally think that the movie distorts reality, just like the North Koreans would, to try to get the point across that our culture is bad.  We have so many freedoms here still compared to some places in the world though.

It's really interesting what can be done where something you know really well is cast in the most ugly and unflattering light, this Propaganda! film proves it rather concerningly. Of course, it does what it says on the tin, it's a propagandised view. But it's very close to the truth of the prevalent culture and society in the West, the majority of people do fall for all this bs at least at some point of their lives, and some never figure the manipulations out. Still not moving to North Korea any time soon, though.

Wow this is a really good documentary and it touches at all the points where USA is wrong on multiple levels
Vague slogans, media propoganda, new imperalism through globalization
Still watching through but worth recommending
The movie seeks out to do what it says it will do Propoganda and it does it well
