ISSUE 84 / 2016 TECHNOLOGY Ben Gillin's 'Kimunji' series has been designed to get people talking about the real issue of North Korea's nuclear programme rather than the less pressing issue of Kim Kardashian. Mr Gillin told the BBC: 'Kim Jong-un is obviously a terrible person, but in some respects what the Kimoji app is doing to society is also terrible.The content is terrible - I imagine little kids using it. It's ending up in their hands, advancing their minds in certain ways'.
