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)

@paul I've asked a friend to provide some hopefully balanced view on it (he has first hand knowledge on the topic).

@keverets Excellent links, thanks. Turns out asking you mastodon folks is a very good way of learning things!

@paul @keverets I got a fairly long answer from my friend. Do you have an email address I can send it to?
