I wonder what social dynamics the web and digital photography will have on kids growing up. There are several mothers on my friends list, most of whom have their babies running around naked on their public image ablums. It's a common thing. It's cute and it's cool that we can do this. But I wonder what the kids will think as they enter their teens and all their friends can look them up and see these very likely embarrassing baby pictures. Baby pictures have always had a stigma of the child never wanting their friends or perspective dates seeing the images, and now all their friends will be able to see these images as soon as they can figure out how to use a search engine. Will the kids be mortified that they are runnning around nude and in diapers online, or will they be so used to it that they won't care?

It'll be an interesting social experiment to watch.
