Raspberried.. W. Africa Linux.

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

I bought two Raspberry Pi (B) ultimate kits this week..
Was impressed. now I gotta buy a third for myself just for fun.

One of them is going back to Benin W. Africa with Idriss,
whom, since I intro'd him to Linux almost two years ago
has become quite the Linux driven asset where he works.

His first Pi project is to use it to control some farm equipment 
(irrigation valves is the first step) for a family farm.

We often forget how technology can be used to address fundemental needs 
and how empowering flexible low cost open systems can be.
