I can't find this cool toy I saw at the park yesterday!

I saw the coolest little foursquare toy, kind of a portable mini-court, yesterday at the park. I wish I'd stopped and talked to the guys playing with it, but I thought I could find it pretty easily... but not so. So there's a little trampoline, I guess that's about two feet square, with a circular wall around it divided into four sections. They had a ball smaller than a kickball but bigger than a tennis ball, and if they hit it on the trampoline and it went between one person's section of the bordering wall, then it was like it had hit their square. Does anybody know what this? I must have one. Immediately.

Help me make my boyfriend's birthday awesome with fiendishly delightful present wrapping and delivery!

It's my boyfriend's birthday soon, and I want to make the present giving AWESOME! Have already purchased presents and booked flights to be with him. Am organising special birthday meals for him, and a couple of activities too, so most of the day is pretty much sorted. But I really really want the present giving/opening experience in particular to be super fun for him. I'm thinking along the lines of a treasure hunt with clues so he has to hunt for the presents... Or wrapping the presents in a giant box and painting it like a cake with sparklers on top! Or multiple layers of wrapping disguising the present...Or, um, something else. But I don't know what exactly. I just want to make it a completely excellent fun surprise for him. [more inside]

The disbelievers

In 2000, Bill Joy wrote "Why the future doesn't need us" and Jaron Lanier wrote "One half of a manifesto". How did people react to what they said? What do Joy and Lanier do today?

Help Finding Songs/Albums by "Jump and Joy"

Years ago, I was sent two MP3s with songs by Jump and Joy. The titles are "Vamos Everybody" and "Lets Roll". Where can I get the CD by this group? I live in the USA and LOVE their music. Thanks for the help.
