Koreans have looked at the merger of East and West Germany as a model, with the DMZ a kind of Berlin Wall. For such mergers to work, in this day and age, one needs friendly “geeks” on both sides, ready to collaborate in (and on) social media. When relations are hostile, we call them spies, and they risk getting jailed, but in a climate of warming relations, they’re able to work together openly, like on Github. Don’t fall for the fib that DPRK is without access to the internet. Given how “North Korean hackers” have been blamed already, for malicious malware schemes, we know there’s no keeping them away from global OSCON type circuits, where I look forward to joining them (the Japanese are already a strong presence, what with Ruby and all).
