I heard about a company that installs solar panels and then they take part of the energy created as a source of paying for the panels and installation...does this sound right and does anyone know of such a company?

Planning a professional conference for 300 or so instruction librarians and looking for innovative session formats or other structured interactions to engage participants. Have you run across any unusual and effective conference session formats or activities?

Pushbutton toys. Our 21-month old son absolutely loves anything with buttons, dials, and switches. But he's far past being interested in computer keyboards. What can I get him beyond Fisher Price, and more along the lines of dead instrument panels and video switchboards? The stuff on eBay always seems to be in working condition and bids well up past $100 (though I would pay that for something really nice). Any sources I might be able to look at, or maybe a different item I might have overlooked? I may be leaning towards an old-school oscilloscope for supervised play.

Say you have two holes in your front car doors where the speakers should go. And say that even though you can wire them up, you have no way to attach them, because the geniuses that can design a car to drive 300,000 miles can't make interior door panels that don't shred like cardboard after a quarter of that. What would you do? [mas adentro] [more inside]
