Does anyone know the story of how the idea got started of using ones child pictures in avatars? I just think it's a cool idea and was wondering if it had an interesting history or if it was just something one or two people started doing and it just caught on.

There's something kind of powerful about it. Like a resurrection. I might resurrect myself too when i get tired of looking at my current self. I don't know though...i look like hell in most of those old ones. It's like every picture ever taken of me growing up was taken on a major bad hair day. I keep thinking i must have always got my haircuts after the picture taking. lol
