   Yeah.  I went to a usability event in SF a couple of years ago that 
provided childcare for people who needed it.  They took the approach of 
contracting with a service (who'd hired people and done background 
checks already).  It's possible to pay for babysitting services from a 
proper service, but for like a conference with hundreds of people, the 
insurance/liability requirements seem difficult to navigate.
