Do you own a Raspberry Pi?

Not yet.

Have you used an Arduino or other small microcontroller?

Yes, briefly. A friend of mine bought an Arduino, and we set up a home sound streaming service that worked with Apple's Airplay. It was way fun.

Do you program? What languge(s)?

Yes: Clojure and JavaScript by day, Prolog and Smalltalk by night.

Do you build circuits?

I wish! I'm interested in learning. As the great Alan Kay says: "People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware."

Do you see the Rasberry Pi as (a) a sort of small tablet/mobile computer (b) a headless hardware controller (c) some other wacky thing (d) that's the Big Question, isn't it?

D. Yes, it's a really big question. Does it pass the Turing test?


I'm a LISP junkie that writes for the web.
