This mediated experience. For the benefit of the absent parents, the kidsí activities are recorded, edited, packaged, and delivered by marketing professionals at schools, entertainment centres, holiday camps. They may be aware of the propaganda, but still seek out those precious action shots. The kids are too young to produce records themselves for now, but how soon will it start? Will this be the generation with two facebook accounts, for the parents and for the mates? Will keeping a popular blog become an obligatory bullet point on their CV, along with gap year volunteering and an impeccable Amazon order record?
