O primeiro presidente "completamente ligado à internet" toma amanhã posse na Coreia do Sul. A expressão está entre aspas, porque as palavras são de Roh Moo-hyun, recém-eleito presidente da Coreia do Sul, um país onde 70% dos lares têm acesso à internet em banda larga.
Conta o The Guardian:

Polls showed that the victory in December of Mr Roh - who claims to be the world's first president to understand HTML website coding - came from a huge surge of support from twenty- and thirty-somethings. In South Korea, where elections are usually decided by regional rather than generational loyalties, this was a dramatic development.

It was not the last. An OhmyNews report on an accident in which two girls were crushed to death by a US army tractor prompted one surfer to call for demonstrations. Within a week, South Korea was witnessing the biggest anti-US protests in its history.
