Samu Tuomisto's curator insight, October 16, 2013 1:33 PM

Some interesting viewpoints related to rights of Children:

 

Losing chances for anonymity:

 

"With every status update, YouTube video, and birthday blog post, Kate’s parents are preventing her from any hope of future anonymity."

 

Parents in charge of managing identity of their child:

 

"This is not only about privacy, it’s also about your child’s identity. We are human beings, not amoebas. How would you like it if your mother and father were in charge of your social media presence? That’s what you’re doing to your children."

Twin bed for children, modern plywood twin bed
Samu Tuomisto's insight:

Nice looking design for getting inspired - especially the stairs to upper bed look out fun.

 

Indeed Google selected the CasaKids company for advertising Google Adwords as promotional tool: http://casakids.com/blog/2013/6/26/behind-the-scenes-with-google-and-casa-kids ;  I can understand why the company provided good case for that.

BabyWatchome

BabyWatchome | Baby-Child-Family World | Scoop.it

The Baby Watch device works using a fetal Doppler transducer. The Doppler transducer uses sound waves to reproduce motion, such as the fetal heartbeat, as signals that can be heard and visualized. When the transducer is pressed against your abdomen you can hear the baby’s heartbeat and observe it on the connected phone’s screen. The app removes noise from the signal, calculates the heartbeat and visualizes it on the screen of your smartphone.
