"Q.What other plans do you have in mind?

A. One is a global Give One, Get One program. Another thing we're looking at is twinning (a cooperative arrangement between an affluent city and another in a developing country). The first city to twin is Florence, Italy, twinning 10,000 laptops with three African cities. We have a number of cities - they tend to be European at the moment - that would twin with other cities."

This is cool - good for Florence. I couldn't imagine the uproar in the US if small cities started doing this kind of stuff.
