in digital form for each participant. We'll post all of the
omiyage to an FTP site so everyone may download it. Past favors have included a portable sundial from Cris Benton,
daylighting slides from Barbara Erwine, Energy Scheming baseball caps from G. Z. Brown's
ESBL, Wiley books, Ecotone books, digital images from Sun,
Wind & Light, poems, handouts, bibliographies, etc. Bring cool stuff to share!
We will do self-introductions with these items.
