[liberationtech] Sharing children's lives online?

Hi all,

Perhaps this is not the right forum, but I happen to believe it is. If we
care to discuss liberation tech, we ought to discuss the liberation of
those who have little or no capacity to choose for themselves, yes?

What's concerning me today is a decision by my daughter's preschool. They
blog daily with photos and narrative stories about the kids day st school.
Previously, though technically "public" the blog was not indexed and very
difficult(impossible?) to find without the direct link.

At the beginning of this year they overhauled the site and are publishing
the blog in its entirety attached directly to the preschool. That this
change was done without discussion or consent of parents strikes me as
greatly concerning.

As many of you know, I'm generally one of the people saying that too often
libtech activists are a bit excessive in their response to the forward
progress of technology and social media. Am I out of bounds here? Is this
kind of daily blogging of a preschoolers life not a bit frightening?

Any advice from other colleagues, parents or otherwise, would be greatly
appreciated. Though I might have answers for activists and civilians
threatened with death or worse, this situation leaves me at a loss as to
how I should respond.
