Hide / Show Abstract

As the twenty-first century gets under way, the Republic of Korea has found itself at the cutting edge of the information society. With the world watching, Koreans are taking uncharted steps into a life surrounded by information. For many, life in Korea has begun to revolve around high-speed information access. Koreans can access information easily from state of the art mobile networks and handsets, the world’s most extensive broadband network, or from 25’000 cybercafés located around the country. For younger generations, being Korean means being connected.
