laowhy86 is in California so that his wife can give birth due to the negative experiences they had during the birth of their first child in a Chinese hospital. This is the most freely that I've seen him talk about the changes that China has been undergoing over the past few years.

[H]ardOCP: Cars in China Transmit Location Data to the Government
The Shanghai Electric Vehicle Public Data Collecting, Monitoring and Research Center sits in a grey tower in suburban Jiading district. One floor up from the cafeteria, a wall-sized screen glows with dots, each representing a single vehicle coursing along Shanghai's roads to create a massive real-time map that could reveal where people live, shop, work, and worship. Click a dot at random, and up pops a window with a number that identifies each individual vehicle, along with its make and model, mileage and battery charge. All told, the screen exhibits data from over 222,000 vehicles in Shanghai, the vast majority of them passenger cars.

[H]ardOCP: The Chinese Social Credit Score System Has Been Implemented
Good acts such as volunteer work, and blood donations will raise your social credit score. Bad activities such as violating traffic laws, buying too many video games, and smoking in non-smoking areas will be punished severely by the government. Initial punishments include slower internet speeds, reducing access to good schools for the individual and their children, and the loss of rights to book hotels and own pets.

Buying too many video games? Well, thanks to my Steam library I now know I will never be able to become an upstanding citizen of the People's Republic of China.

...thank God!

As someone who travels to China regularly those bike sharing programs are not a disaster. Those bikes get more mileage on them in a week than most bikes see in their lifetime.

They are also easy as hell to use. No need to sign up for uberbikes, fagbike, tyenbike or whatever. Just pull out Alipay and use whatever the fuck bike you find from whatever the fuck company.

The best are the ones who think that the US Government isn't doing exactly what China is to track people. How many of you idiots are holding a phone with GPS. Uncovering What Your Phone Knows

Yep. In Shanghai we could use it -anywhere-. Never had an issue.
We do have a Chinese Bank Account so it made it much easier for us to use.

I'm told Wechat pay is just as good. We didnt use it though.

Over here in Hong Kong, those bikes get deposited in the nearest body of water by the local triad boys. Saw a few that have had their locking/payment mechanism removed by a cutting torch and the bikes used by locals, never saw one actually being used.

Alipay and WeChat pay are trying to make inroads, but we've had our local card for public transport and the MTR in use for damn near everything from 711 to grocery stores and restaurant's. Considering you need to link Ali hand WeChat to a credit card or bank account a lot of the people here won't use it when you can just go to a 711 and put 500 in cash on your octopus and keep on going.
