Word has it that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il boasted about being an "Internet expert". It is this expertise that makes him dubious about allowing further access to the Internet; its potential to stir up dissent is a cause of concern for the leadership.
"I am an Internet expert. Many problems would arise if the Internet is connected to other parts of the North," Yonhap quoted Kim as saying.http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5jp-agp6RIAqb0GRXPBRy69VrKWmw - via linkfilter
On his way home to Seoul from the summit in Pyongyang, Roh said Kim seemed to be "very familiar with the technical aspects of the Internet."
It operates its own version of the Internet, a highly censored Intranet that is policed by the Korea Computer Center, North Korea's window on the worldwide web and its leading high-technology research and development hub.
