Former South Korean president Roh Moo-hyun is well known for the use of the Internet and text messages by his supporters during his presidential election campaign. And The Korea Times has an article that remembers Roh as the “computer-savvy president”:
Roh Moo-hyun was a rare big-name politician who looked more comfortable behind a monitor than with fancy paper and fountain pens. The world was reminded of this in a tragic way Saturday morning when the 62-year-old typed a short note on his computer for his family to see, just an hour before leaping to his death on a hiking trip near his home in Bongha Village.
