Maine iBook program

Maine's laptop computer program this fall as Governor John Baldacci had hoped, according to the Associated Press: "But the administration apparently intends to spend $8 million to put the wireless infrastructure in place in hopes of winning approval in the next legislative session. To move forward, Education Commissioner Susan Gendron needed legislative approval to continue negotiations aimed at expanding Maine's first-in-the-nation program from middle schools into high schools."

    First in the Nation?

    Anyone heard of Henrico Country VA, the iBook launch customer?

    $8 Million

    Why does it cost $8 Million to set up a bunch of Airports? Do they really need 7,700 of them (I'll allow for some labor costs).
