A Reader's Idea

A reader writes:

I have been striving for a 1:1 pilot for several years. With my small rural county strapped for funds, I have decided to see if area non-profits and industries would like to 'sponsor' a child to have a laptop for a year... This child would then keep in touch with their sponsor, letting them know how they are using Web 2.0 tools to learn great things! Hopefully this personal connection to a child will evoke greater giving from the community than just asking for the tool itself...

Tech patronage programs are a great idea. Here's a place to look for totally reasonable refurbished machines once you get some sponsors.
