Some pull quotes:

The all-digital habits begin young: Estonian children learn computer programming at school, many beginning in kindergarten. See photo of Children in a coding class in an elementary school in Tallinn.

In 2000, Estonia became the first country in the world to declare Internet access a basic human right—much like food and shelter. That same year it passed a law giving digital signatures equal weight to handwritten ones. That single move created an entire paperless system.
