Eric Schmidt’s daughter reports on creepy North Korea trip, says the country is like ‘The Truman Show’
After returning from a private mission to North Korea, Eric Schmidt says he sternly warned North Korean officials that their country risks falling further behind economically without a connection to the global internet, but didn’t elaborate much further on the trip. Schmidt’s daughter Sophie was also with the delegation, and in a lengthy Google Sites post titled “It might not get weirder than this,” she describes a trip full of “highly staged encounters, tightly-orchestrated viewings and what seemed like genuine human moments.”
