How's this for interesting timing?

Today's Washington Post "Reliable Source" column mentions this very topic.

Here's the link:

http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A46820-2000Mar9.html

Just a small excerpt from the column:

"And [we] started to wonder, 'Can't we just ask people to give us money?' That didn't seem appropriate. But why couldn't we register for stock?" Thus was born StockGift.com, an unusual online registry for weddings, baby showers, birthdays, graduations and other milestones for which people tend to give other people stuff. The idea is that the happy recipients can register for stocks, mutual funds and other securities instead."
