Philly schools get Microsoft brotherly love: Bill Gates just bought his first school. (Sorry, Dave :-)

“Microsoft is teaming with the School District of Philadelphia to design and build a new high school wired with the latest in educational computing tools.

The District and Microsoft announced plans on Friday to construct a high school that ties technology into nearly every aspect of the institution’s operations. The estimated $46 million project is being funded by a school district capital program, with Microsoft reporting that it will donate software, professional services and support staff for the school.”
