Accidental Raspberry Pi Selfie

While monkeying around with the Raspberry Pi and the camera and the GPIO, I took this selfie. I guess the camera was upside down!

The Raspberry Pi is pretty great overall. The real bugaboo is the wifi and networking capabilities. You still have to specify these settings manually.

But the cost, only $40! I have 4 of them running now, all doing different tasks. Perfect for my upcoming Bot Collective project (lots and lots of Twitterbots)

7/10 stars.

@mkgandhibot — the last of the quotebots

@mkgandhibot is up and running and quoting away. This is the last of my straight-up quotebots and the 6th in the series.

Why did I choose Gandhi? Simple: he is one of the most quotable and compassionate leaders ever.

There were others such as Martin Luther King Jr., but MLK tended to have longer quotes, > 140 characters.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
