Adactio: Journal—Web! What is it good for?
It’s time to recognise that this is the wrong approach. We shouldn’t try to compete with native apps in terms set by the native apps. Instead, we should concentrate on the unique web selling points: its reach, which, more or less by definition, encompasses all native platforms, URLs, which are fantastically useful and don’t work in a native environment, and its hassle-free quality.

I’ve come to believe that a lot of what’s wrong with the Internet has to do with memory. The Internet somehow contrives to remember too much and too little at the same time, and it maps poorly on our concepts of how memory should work.

The web has no gatekeepers. The web has no quality control. The web is a mess. The web is for everyone.

China's Dystopian Tech Could Be Contagious
There's no reason the type of all-encompassing "social credit" scoring system being rolled out by Beijing couldn't be similarly employed elsewhere, writes urbanist Adam Greenfield for The Atlantic, while exploring the actual implications of living in such a society. The implementation of China's social credit system has been "piecemeal so far," but the Party has spent many years fine tuning what China expert calls "networked authoritarianism," with the social credit system arguably becoming the most comprehensive result of a multitude of repressive policies and systems.

Greenfield writes: "This end-to-end grid of social control is still in its prototype stages, but three things are already becoming clear: First, where it has actually been deployed, it has teeth. Second, it has profound implications for the texture of urban life. And finally, there’s nothing so distinctly Chinese about it that it couldn’t be rolled out anywhere else the right conditions obtain. The advent of social credit portends changes both dramatic and consequential for life in cities everywhere—including the one you might call home...

"As laid out in the proposal [that announced China's plans for the social credit system], the system’s stated purpose was to ride herd on corrupt government officials, penalize the manufacture of counterfeit consumer products, and prevent mislabeled or adulterated food and pharmaceuticals from reaching market. This framing connects the system to a long Confucian tradition of attempts to bolster public rectitude. The means was certainly novel, though, yoking together advanced machine-learning systems, online databases, municipal CCTV networks and the pocket-sized sensor platforms known as smartphones...

"The Chinese genius, if you can call it that, was to take credit scoring as a tool of social discipline to its logical conclusion, building a formal public-private partnership around it. This move extends dominion across the entire range of interactions any member of modern society is more or less compelled to pursue by the very style and structure of contemporary life."
