(Raspberry) Pi in the Sky

Hackers, Makers, and Gert van Loo

Fish Fry is going raspberry this week, Raspberry Pi that is! My special guest is none other than the co-creator of the Raspberry Pi board Gert van Loo. Gert and I are chatting about how the Raspberry Pi board was created, how Gert built upon Raspberry Pi to create the Gertboard, and why he thinks IO education is important for the next wave of engineers. Also this week, I’m chatting with Cliff Ortmeyer (newark element14) about the interesting intersection of hackers, makers, and engineers.

In keeping with this week’s theme, I have a Raspberry Pi Model B to give away to one lucky listener– courtesy of newark element14.

If you read my post Who Put the Silicon in Silicon Valley? then you know my conclusion: Let's go with Shockley. He invented the transistor, came here, hired a bunch of young PhDs, and sent them out (by accident, not design) to create the companies, that created the compa...
