Spy Cameras In Shanghai Internet Cafes
from the why-not-just-make-them-wear-cameras-all-the-time dept
Already all internet usage in China is heavily monitored and filtered. However, apparently that’s not enough for their internet cafes. It’s not even enough to have internet cafe operators monitor usage to make sure nothing “bad” is happening. Instead, they’re going one step further to install video cameras in internet cafes which send a broadcast to a central “supervisory center” where someone will make sure that nothing bad is happening. They claim it was spot illegal activity “immediately” – though they don’t explain what they’ll do after they spot that illegal activity. What’s the next step? Having everyone wear their own camera all the time and have it send a constant stream to the same “supervisory center” in case you do or see anything bad?
