A cross-over post, but I am pretty proud of this. Mainly because it took me an absurd amount of time to write. Some of Maine’s greatest people all in one place! You’re welcome.

Laptops and lobster, or why Maine is cooler than where you live

via:

Today it was announced that the state of Maine, known predominantly for Stephen King, lobster rolls and silly accents, has ordered 64,000 MacBooks for students in grades 7-12. An additional 7,000 laptops are planned for the coming weeks.

The initiative- aka the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI)- may just be the world’s biggest educational technology program of its kind. Even cooler is that Apple plans to hook Maine up with educational software, technical support, repair and replacement, so the pimply rugrats don’t even have to drag their cranberry-bogging selves to the Genius bar.

In a statement, Education Commissioner Sue Gendron said boringly:

“We have seen incredible success with our middle schools showing increased student engagement and achievement with MLTI in place and we want to bring this same opportunity to our high schools. This is not just about technology, it’s about using the technology to support education.”

Not so hot is the fact that only half of the state’s districts plan to participate in the initiative. Places you’ve read about in It and Needful Things such as Portland, Bangor and Augusta are seeking permission hook a brother up using stimulus funds to get the MacBooks for their oddly-speaking youngsters. It would be pretty awesome if that happened, because the lucky kids in Maine get to take their shiny new MacBooks home for homework, online teaching sessions and other edumacational stuff.

No one said what I really wanted to know- are they going to stick porn filters on them or something lame like that?

Fifty-two Maine lighthouses will be open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 12, as part of the first Open Lighthouse Day.
The event is designed to attract visitors to the state’s lighthouses and raise public awareness of Maine’s maritime heritage.
Gov. John Baldacci, representatives of the Coast Guard and state tourism officials will announce details of the day at a press conference at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth.
U.S. Lighthouse Service artifacts will be on display and a retired lighthouse keeper will attend the press conference.

The Red Claws, Maine’s new NBA D-League basketball team, unveiled new logo today. What can I say, I think even Shaq is sad not to be playing for this team.
