Professional video gamers, “netiquette” for five-year-olds and a rehab camp for Internet-addicted teens: it’s all part of the digital landscape in South Korea. Correspondent Douglas Rushkoff takes a look at this highly wired society tomorrow night as the second segment on PBS’s FRONTLINE/World .
The footage is from our recent trip to South Korea, and it’s part of a larger project we’re producing for FRONTLINE, called Digital Nation
We’re going to be investigating life in the digital age through our website over the upcoming months, and it will culminate in a FRONTLINE documentary broadcast early next year.
