FILE - In this Oct. 5, 2011 file photo, portraits of North Korea's late leaders Kim Il Sung, left, and Kim Jong Il hang on a wall over a bank of computers at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology. North Korea is literally off the charts regarding Internet freedoms. There essentially aren’t any. But the country is increasingly online. Though it deliberately and meticulously keeps its people isolated and in the dark about the outside world, it knows it must enter the information age to survive in the global economy.
