I am a software developer living near Munich, Germany. I own one Raspberry Pi, ordered on the day of the great DDOS, and am interested in all aspects of it as a user-hackable machine.
My interest in programming started with my neighbour's NasCom, followed by a friend's PET and then my own BBC. Many hours were spent typing in and debugging programs, as well as on the biggest time sink of all, Elite.
So in some way the world hasn't really changed, has it?
