Donate Your Old USB Drives to Fight North Korean Brainwashing
The thumb drives gathering dust in your desk drawer could help to open one of the world's most closed countries.
In the age of Dropbox and Google Drive, the USB stick has come to seem like a dusty tchotchke that belongs in the drawer with your iPhone 4 cables. But send your chunk of cheap flash memory into North Korea, and it becomes a powerful, even subversive object—one that a new activist project wants use to help chip away at the intellectual control of the hermit kingdom’s fascist government.
Recycling and fighting tyrants, what’s not to like?
