China’s Divided Netizens | Berggruen Insights
"[In China,] netizens have splintered into many types and the sense of an online collectivity has weakened...The result is not pluralism in China’s online sphere, but the suppression and weakening of critical and liberal voices. Online activism has declined in tandem with the expansion of “positive energy,” a code word for positive publicity about the regime or its leaders." - GUOBIN YANG, Berggruen Insights

The Authoritarian Internet Power Grab - WSJ
A new navigational and addressing technology, Digital Object Architecture (DOA), could enable the real-time surveillance and tracking of each device and individual connected to the web.

Gary Lineker defends Twitter views as the Sun gives him red card | Football | The Guardian
In 2014, he told the Guardian that “Twitter Gary” enabled him to be more outspoken than he could be on television. “I’ve quite often written tweets that I think are across that line, but I just delete them. There’s a few of those,” he said. “My law to myself is, if I’ve got doubts, then don’t send it. Do I really need the shit? Although I suppose I quite enjoy finding out where the line is.”

China’s plan to organize its society relies on ‘big data’ to rate everyone - @simondenyer
The government hasn’t announced exactly how the plan will work — for example, how scores will be compiled and different qualities weighted against one another. But the idea is that good behavior will be rewarded and bad behavior punished, with the Communist Party acting as the ultimate judge.

This is what China calls “Internet Plus,” but critics call a 21st-century police state. - by Simon Denyer, The Washington Post
