This looks like a worthy endeavour.
 
+Outernet lets you get useful stuff from the internet via satellites in geostationary orbit, in places where other internet access is deficient. When we discovered that Outernet's DIY receiver is based on a Raspberry Pi, we had to try it out, and on 2 June we became, we think, the first UK receiver to get online. Find out more about this excellent project in a blog post by our own +David Honess.
Through working with the UK Space Agency on the Astro Pi project we’ve learnt about something called Outernet. Internet, Outernet – see what they did there? Outernet is a small company started by Syed Karim that broadcasts the most useful stuff from the internet via satellites in geostationary orbit. Anyone receiving the broadcast then has …

I wrote this story in 2013 for a medic web site ...that's shutting down, so I've moved it to my blog: the story behind the first paramedics in the U.S. -- and it ain't Johnny and Roy!
This article was originally written by Randy Cassingham for the now defunct site Every Medic, and moved here as that site was being shut down. - - -. Military corpsmen go way back, providing special care to soldiers on the battlefield. Hospitals often provided horse-drawn ambulances, ...

OK, what were you building when you were 11?
 
Despicable Katie, aged 11, uses a Raspberry Pi to customise a Kossel Mini 3D printer to suit her evil purposes.
When we were at SXSW Create in Austin back in March, teaching hundreds of kids about Bash script, we met a young lady called Katie. Katie looks unassuming, but she’s actually an evil genius. Some of the other kids we talked to during the three-day event hadn’t done a huge amount with a Raspberry Pi before (although …

Greetings!

New to Python, but not new to programming.  I'm looking forward to this course.  I use Linux primarily at home, but also use Windows 7 at work as my desktop.  I also have a Raspberry Pi of both generations as a resource to help if needed.
