中国部署世界最大人民追踪网络 reports that China is building the largest and most sophisticated people-tracking network in the world, all to track citizens in the city of Shenzhen.

The key to the system is the new residency cards fitted with powerful computer chips. "Data on the chip will include not just the citizen"s name and address but also work history, educational background, religion, ethnicity, police record, medical insurance status and landlord"s phone number. Even personal reproductive history will be included, for enforcement of China"s controversial "one child" policy. Plans are being studied to add credit histories, subway travel payments and small purchases charged to the card." While I lived in Shenzhen, there indeed were (and still are) plenty of crimes.
