How tiny Estonia stepped out of USSR's shadow to become an internet titan [Patrick Kingsley, The Guardian - 4/15/12]
Free Wi-Fi is everywhere, and has been for a decade. Viik says you could walk 100 miles – from the pastel-coloured turrets here in medieval Tallinn to the university spires of Tartu – and never lose internet connection. - Mitchell Tsai from Bookmarklet
the government set up the Cyber Defence League, a network of 100 volunteers from the cybersector who, among other roles, will form – a kind of territorial army during future strife. "Traditionally in western countries," said Ilves, "you've had a weekend-warrior thing where volunteers run off into the woods and do target practice. In Estonia, we have a unit of IT people from banks, software companies who in their spare time for one day a week work on cyber issues." - Mitchell Tsai
