Really disturbing when parents continuously post pictures and publicly document every step of their children's development online. Searchable by and visible to anyone for years to come. Indexed, saved and archived by every search engine and crawler on the planet. Undeletable.

Remarkably we try to teach children about online safety and data permanence (e.g. "don't post it unless you're happy to see it on a billboard in five years") and yet one day they will grow up, search their own names and realise that their parents didn't feel this applied to them.

I don't envy kids growing up today. I really don't.
