For my generation, being anonymous is no longer an option. For many of us, the decisions about our online presence are made before we can even speak.

I unfortunately knew there was no way to respect the digital civil rights of society by playing the silicon valley exploitation game.

Pixie promptly unpacked it all. Once it was established that he was well on track developmentally, the nurse asked him to pack the toys away; Pixie would not hear of it. I told him in Hungarian that after he packed away, we’d go for ice cream: he immediately sprung to action and delivered the most focussed packing job the nurse has ever seen. After expressing her amazement she asked me what I’d said…
