A Visual Tale of 2 Koreas


Since this blog is about "Technology & Life", I thought I would post the picture above to hopefully get some people thinking and maybe get some folks to appreciate what they have.


I saw the above picture on Slate and was really amazed at what it shows.  It is a satellite photo of the Korean peninsula taken from space.  The amazing part is that South Korea is extremely well lit (as is Japan and China) while North Korea is almost completely dark.

This is an amazing way of showing the amount of suffering that is probably going on in the North due to lack of infrastructure and certainly a lack of technology for the general population.

Next time you get upset when your broadband cable goes out for an hour, think of these poor folks who live like this every day...

It really is amazing when you see the difference.
