In the 1940s, the tiny Baltic nation of Estonia, was subject to multiple invasions and it faced mass executions and deportations. When it threw off the shackles of Communism in the 1990s many considered it to be poor and underdeveloped. Since then, it's become an economic success, embracing the digital age more than any other country in the world; reshaping how its citizens access healthcare, the legal system, and other public services. Steve Paikin speaks to Estonia's former president Toomas Hendrik Ilves, the man behind that digital revolution.
