Kids say the darndest thingss

My 5-yr old daughter, on the burden of remote identity management (trying to access her Webkinz account from a friend's house)
I couldn't get on because I didnt have my username but I had my secret code so I was able to get my password changed.

I don't think we need be concerned about the abilities of her generation to adapt to new identity models - they'll do just fine.

Perhaps then we should stop worrying about 'My Mother' as the average user for which we design identity systems and skip to the grandchildren - far less constraining.
