    What a great way to meet such a wonderful influence in the computing world. The setting was intimate and informal was proved to be a great way to learn about the history of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

    I am currently using one Raspberry Pi as the brains for a Motorola Lapdock, which in effect gives me a linux laptop for < $100. My other Raspberry Pi is being used with openremote.org to test the capabilities of using the device as a home automation interface. This is currently being done with Arduino's, but I like pi better!

    I was thinking of doing a media box for the tv but I've seen two cool projects that make me want to go bigger.

    This is going to be cool. Now I just have to a) get my hands on one, and b) figure out what I should do with it.
