Kiddie smart mobs

David Pogue’s column in today’s New York Times Circuits is a round-up of the cell phones being marketed for the kindergarten-early grade school set. These parent-programmed handsets introduce children at an early age to life as a node in a virtual network. Typical other parent-determined nodes in their first small net-world include the parents’ cellphones, grandma and grandpa, friends of the children, neighbors, and 911.

With children growing up under networks, how will this affect social networking in the future - pre-conditioned?
