the hp touchsmart pc is a video phone when used with msn live messenger.
it has a built-in webcam + microphone, so you can make free pc to pc calls.

"AT&T conducted experiments and demonstrations of a Picturephone product and service in the early 1960s, including at the 1964 New York World's Fair. The demo unit was usually in a small oval cabinet on a swivel stand, intended to stand on a desk. Videophones, possibly AT&T units, were featured at Expo 67, an International World's Fair held in Montreal, Canada in 1967. Several demonstration videophone units were available for the Fair-going public to try, who were permitted to make live video calls to recipient volunteers in the United States.

Picturephone was offered to the public in New York City and Washington DC in the early 1970s. The screen was larger than in the original demo units, approximately half a foot (15 cm) square in a roughly cubical cabinet. Picturephone booths were set up in Grand Central Station and elsewhere. With fanfare, Picturephones were installed in offices of Westinghouse and other progressive companies

AT&T sold the VideoPhone 2500 to the general public in 1992 to 1995 with prices starting at US$1500 and later US$1000.

Today the principles, if not the precise mechanisms of a videophone are employed by many users world-wide in the form of webcam conferences using personal computers, with cheaply available webcams and microphones and free instant messenger programs. Thus an activity that was disappointing as a separate service found a niche as a minor feature of products intended for other purposes."

here's a video of the videophones at expo 67 (via expo lounge)

world breastfeeding week 8/1 :: 120 countries worldwide: mod*tot + i proudly breastfed as a team in the 2003 defense of the u.s.a's guinness world record for "simultaneous breastfeeding in a single site" in berkeley, california (australia had the record before the u.s.a.)
"in may 2006, the philippines, broke the Guinness World Record on Simultaneous Breastfeeding in a Single Site when they gathered 3,541 mothers with the City of Manila. This year, they created the First Guinness World Record on Simultaneous Breastfeeding in Multiple Sites when they gathered more than 20,000 mothers in more than 400 sites. The organizing group, Children for Breastfeeding, in partnership with WABA, is planning for the first ever attempt to foster cooperation among nations to establish another Guinness World Record in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week. The idea is simple: Join as a pair of breastfeeding mother + child or organize breastfeeding mothers + children in as many sites as possible in your own country + be a part of the network around the world! If you are interested to join in making history with this WBW project, please register at breastfeedingworld.net "
