    I do find this thread interesting dots. Not that it would have much to do with us little people who aren't billionaires.

    What is a "solar powered eco-lab"?? Is it Ellison's fish tank --- or a more substantial deal?

    Solar thermal is a better deal than solar voltaic because SOME heat is retained at night that can be boosted by fossil fuel. But I'm betting that he'll blow a large wad of money playing with these peoples' lives and eventually they will turn on his lack of humility and seriousness.. Turning their community into his hobby might sound fantastic to the econauts -- you could pledge your allegiance to your Island King and go participate. Let me know how that arraignment turns out when the King is GONE 300 days of the year...

    I love Larry Ellison.. Drove by Oracle Hq almost every day when I lived in Cali... He's got a Cup Class sail boat just marooned in the Corporate pond because he can..

    I just don't want to live in his vacation Kingdom...
