Soon it will be commonplace for parents to do a quick domain name search before settling on a name for their children. If the name is not available, they may tweak the name slightly: William Smith suddenly becomes Willyum Smith because WillyumSmith.com is available. More kids will be named after ‘nic’s, like jted72, or james007. More children will not use Capitols, even though their names are proper nouns. More kids will think names like Kal-el, Apple, or Pirate are ‘normal’. It will be very uncool not to have your own website, even in Kindergarten. The internetting of identity is well at hand.
