North Korea is smaller and better mapped, and orcs are more noble than communists.
[M]y friend Curtis Melvin is kind of a badass. The hardcore libertarian "vacations" in authoritarian countries like Zimbabwe, Iran, and Turkmenistan.
He has also been to North Korea–twice–and and in 2007 started a fascinating project where he’s using Google Earth, news reports, and North Korea’s own government propaganda to pull the veil back on the country’s secretive infrastructure. Since he started the project, collaborators from all over the world have joined the effort, including defectors and former military intelligence officials.
My friend Ken, in my humble opinion, is one of the finest bloggers on the interwebs. His second best post posed the question:
[A]sk yourself — couldn’t I do this on some subject that interests me? Why haven’t I? What would the nation be like, if a hundred thousand people did?
That was in the context of discussing one blogger's irritating phone calls (sorry Ken, she's a better blogger than you, or me for that matter), which exposed and busted a fake charity.
About a hundred thousand people have contributed to WOWHEAD's project to map and database every zone and quest in the imaginary world of Azeroth, where World of Warcraft is played.
Ask yourself: If 100,000 people have mapped an imaginary world; if 35,000 people have mapped the most awful and secret parts of North Korea, where the orcs are real; why haven't you started a blog? You probably know something that none of us knows.
One person and a laptop can make all the difference. Get to work.
