Deep Conversations and the Rasperry Pi

On Tuesday "The boy" shared a link on my Facebook wall about computing, its a shared interest and the topic of many a conversation. This particular one went a little wrong, my spelling let me down and before you know it he had the upper hand ! I find it quite humorous, you may too.. 


On another similar note, have you heard about the new Rasberry Pi?


Its a credit sized computer that is around £20, hook up a monitor and keyboard and away you go. It is designed to get people interested in the basics of computing and programming. In much the same way that computers in the 80's did. The theory is to re-engage kids in particular to the practicalities of computing design, not just buy and use. Jake and I have one on order :)

He got you good on that one.
Teeny Tiny computers? Cool!! I'm waiting for the day when at birth they put a chip in our heads and we become walking voice activated computers with no need for extraneous hardware. We are the Borg.

wow, that small of a computer? I wonder where they'll be in let's say, ten years!

I think seeing the guts of the computers would amaze today's kids. A computer in the 1970s was the size of a gymnasium. Then Apple made one to fit on a desk with a green monitor. Now...It is truly amazing.

Spelling was always your worstest subject wasn't it, has your spell checker gone on the blink?
