Google’s Eric Schmidt arrives in North Korea

Google’s executive chair Eric Schmidt and former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson have arrived in North Korea. The trip has been described as a goodwill mission to the country that in many respects is cut off from the rest of the world. It should be no surprise that Schmidt, a big believer in opening up access to the Internet to all people, would be interested in establishing a relationship and possibly starting the process of changing North Korea’s stance. The visit comes at a time when tensions have notched up a bit between the U.S. and North Korea over some of North Korea’s military moves, like the recent test firing of an intercontinental capable missile. The timing of the trip had not been disclosed previously.
