Our organization is looking to set up a network of sites (at least a 12 for now) for our coordinators in various cities. We have a bunch of specific requirements...

A third-party website has created a "profile" for me on their own site, using my main Facebeook picture, which turns up on the first page of Google hits for my full name. It seems to be some kind of cheesy dating site and I really don't want it up there. I've never used the site, or interacted with it in any way (I don't use any FB apps at all, and am savvy enough not to click on spammy links). Do I have any recourse for getting this taken down?

Can you recommend some great educational media for my nearly two year old daughter? I am looking for good DVD's, computer / iPhone software, or websites that I can load up for 30-60 minutes a day. I would like something she can learn from, but if she is having fun, that is cool as well. Right now she is a Dora and Diego addict. I just got her a few LeapFrog preschool DVD's that she loves. She can sing her ABC's and can count to 10 in English and Spanish. She is just starting to be able to answer "How does the letter A, B, C, etc. go?' She knows how to flip pages and push buttons on the iPhone. Are there any computer learning games that a two year old could handle. Flash games? iPhone games? Answers to this question do not involve telling me to take my daughter outside. I am familiar with the debunking of Baby Einstein. I would just like to find some good stuff for her to watch, play or interact with. General toy recommendations are good as well.
I recently moved from Brunswick, Maine to San Francisco. I know there are all sorts of amazing things going on here, but I'm looking for unique, helpful, or interesting websites and services that are either specific to San Francisco, or primarily helpful in large cities that weren't available to me in Brunswick. Anything you'd call "Web 2.0" probably applies, and if it's in beta that's probably a good sign. I've got a (short) sample list after the fold. [more inside]
