China is marrying Big Brother to Big Data.

Leave No Dark Corner – The Coming Age Of Digital Dictatorship
Every citizen will be watched and their behavior scored in the most ambitious and sophisticated system of social control in history.

This is an incredible undertaking, China doesn’t do things by half. They must have entire cities of people dedicated to running and maintaining an operation of this size. And the server farms required to store data on 1.3 billion people? The mind boggles.

ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) have a very well designed web presentation to go along with the documentary available on Youtube.
