North Korea Is New Hotbed For Tech Outsourcing

Despite it being pretty-much closed off to the world, North Korea is the next boom place for IT and tech outsourcing, PC World has reported. Flash games are being developed there for outside publishers, largely thanks to the home-grown talent.

US companies aren't allowed to outsource to the country naturally, thanks to government restrictions, but Nosotek, which has become North Korea's largest outsourcer, is doing extremely well developing software and even online Flash games and iPhone apps, with one of their titles being in Germany's App Store top ten at one point.

As you know, there are tight regulations for the internet and even electricity in North Korea, so it's pretty surprising to hear that companies such as Nosotek are allowed to create Flash-based games for other countries—even if they're not for American companies. [PC World]
