The Right to Be... um

I'm broadly sympathetic to the concerns behind the "right to be forgotten" efforts. I just don't think that is something that can be effectively legislated as long as we have an open internet. What is more likely is that cultural norms will change and we won't hold stupid pictures and comments from youth against people as much. Which will be a good thing, IMHO. (although that change in cultural norms won't solve the whole problem)
