Submission + - Mayor of Birmingham, Al. Asks For OLPC Exception (al.com)

BhamGray writes: "Larry Langford, the new Mayor of Birmingham, Alabama, has asked the One Laptop Per Child organization to consider providing students in his City with laptops for the 2008 school year. The City of Birmingham would purchase the laptops through OLPC at a price of around $200 each. This would be a departure from the OLPC's "developing nations" target, but the organization's representatives are quoted in the article as having been persuaded by Mayor Langford to consider it."
