I'm giving a (5 minute) Ignite talk on China's social credit system next week, and I admit I don't know a lot about it yet.
Can anyone point me towards good reading on the topic?
@paul just argue that the "west" needs to do it - whatever it is - before the chinese so as not to fall behind (But it must be surveillance with capitalist credentials lest we be accused of converting to chinese style socialism)
a ha ha
@grumpy_developer Ha, I love it!
@paul I've asked a friend to provide some hopefully balanced view on it (he has first hand knowledge on the topic).
@tastytea Great, thank you!
@paul Planet Money's Indicator covered it a quickly: https://www.npr.org/templates/transcript/transcript.php?storyId=655914994
And a bit more depth from someone blacklisted: https://www.npr.org/templates/transcript/transcript.php?storyId=661151404
@keverets Excellent links, thanks. Turns out asking you mastodon folks is a very good way of learning things!
