Few if any daring souls would make the harrowing journey north of the 39th parallel, but Eric Schmidt and now Dennis Rodman have, and those looking to see what lies beyond are making use of a Beijing company's routing service for access to the needless to say anti-West country.

Last month, Google’s (GOOG) chairman made headlines by visiting the communist state. On Tuesday, the former NBA star started a week-long visit to the North, traveling with three members of the Harlem Globetrotters on a goodwill visit.
