Thought everyone would get a kick out of this-
I found this video the other day and thought it tied in well with what we're reading. It's just a simple but fun video.
You'll have to click the link above, the picture is just a picture...
I'm finally on the blog and I thought I'd start by pointing out an awesome new tool for the Intermedia arsenal. It's called "Raspberry Pi" - A fully functioning computer the size of a credit card, capable of running linux. It's been designed with beginners in programming in mind, but it's no slouch. It can output full 1080i hd video from its hdmi port. It's also got a low def video output squeezed onto it. Something this powerful and this small would be awesome for any installation running interactive elements, or even just to loop video. It also uses very little power and doesn't heat up, so sure you could hide a laptop in the ceiling for most applications, but this thing could be very discrete if you're dealing with a gallery that doesn't want you drilling holes. Plus (if you can believe it) they cost less than 40 bucks, which means if you're planning an outdoor installation you could "hide" it outdoors and not worry about someone walking off with it like you would if you were using a mac mini or a laptop.
Here is a link to the video that I saw this morning-
And here is a link to the developer's website. There online store is down at the moment, my guess is a million other people saw that video this morning and crashed it...
