OLPC computers on their way to Birmingham, Ala.
Anyone who has thought that, as nice as the Linux-powered One Laptop Per Child computers are for the target market of third-world children, they’d also make a lot of sense for U.S. kids too, is in good company. The mayor of Birmingham, Ala., Larry Langford, had the same thought and the result is that the city will be deploying 15,000 OLPCs to its school system.

So cool that an Alabama city is the first in the US to do this! This news is a month or more old but I just found this post on it and had to share. Hope it works out for them.
