I thought I'd mention that several of the sponsors of this list have been 
hard at work for the last few months on the Greenhome CD-ROM that is part 
of this list of resources. CREST produced the CD for WETA, and Alex 
Wilson wrote most of the content. It consists of a virtual walk-through  
of a house that is modelled on one that John Abrams and his South 
Mountain Company built recently on Marthas Vineyard. 

We have yet to see the final version, but it should be a lot of fun.
