It's a very old principle, but we didn't had those pico-watt appliances like LED's to use the energy. Now we really can do a lot of things. Even the movement of persons can light up LED's. I like it.

 The reason why I originally went into Second Life was for business pursuit,(for example creating and developing real life projects inworld in conceptual form and to test them in a virtual world) but soon learned there were a way too many "distractions". M.O.O.C.'s are great but can't see them taking off in SL for those same reasons.
