Sweden frequently has stood at the vanguard of change: It was the first country to grant freedom of the press and the first nation to establish an environmental protection agency. Digital trends analyst Kristin Heinonen explains how the Swedes became early adopters of the Internet in the 1990s and what role the government played in this feat. Her narrative presents an imitable model for nations that don’t consider “socialism” a dirty word. getAbstract suggests Heinonen’s engrossing video to local, regional and national elected officials, as well as to engaged citizens.

- How Sweden became one of the world’s most connected nations,
- How public-private partnerships paved the way for this development and
