so why do have children "more rights" than other attendees? (and don't get me 
wrong, I fully support that - just think about the question... for me the 
conclusion was+is: nobody should be photographed without their explicit 

Another solution to the "don't photograph me^w^wviolate privacy" dilemma could 
be that photos could only be taken between 1300-1400 each day, plus the first 
5m of every talk... IOW: make the default photo free.

Which I think is actually sensible for all areas - except maybe talks + other 
events. But in hallways & hacklabs & everywhere else the rule should be: don't 
take pictures of people withour their prior consent.

Which I understand is not the case in most areas outside DebConf, but noone 
said we couldn't do better then what's usual ;)
