On Friday, Eben gave the keynote speech at PyCon. Enjoy!
I wonder where I have heard this before?
Great video giving some insight behind the Pi. Maybe all said before but I hadn’t heard it.

Thanks Gordon! Some of the material isn’t new: but a fair old bit is.
The TARDIS made an appearance, so that’s new :-)
OMG, Eben showed a slide of my RPi’s desktop. I need a lie down.
Afterwards he made a surprise visit to the Silicon Valley Jam, saw various projects people brought and Jim Manning and I pumped him for all the information we could pry loose. Following that, the three of us swapped old stories (I found out that Eben’s father is a mere 4 years older than I am…).
Since he’s no longer wearing his HAL T-shirt in exchange for a black one, has anyone else noticed his wardrobe’s gradual morphing into that of the late, great Steve Jobs? That’s minus the unapproachability, megalomania, lack of self-effacement, no sense of humor, or any other normal human traits that Steve eschewed, of course – Eben couldn’t be more of an opposite from Steve, personality-wise!
I hope you noticed that the black t-shirt is actually an EFF t-shirt! (Can’t really imagine Jobs in one of those…)
Ok Eben. You’ve just given to me my Compelling Vision of a future. Maybe I should go get a PHD at Cambridge. God knows I’ve already done the work that some PHD would like to do on a computer.
PS Your booth’s “Best Of Show” is still waiting for you and Liz. Let me know when your next in NorCal.
Great video, well worth watching.
Thank you – and more power to your collective elbows! :-) x
p.s. I’ve just bumped Stephen Fry off my dream CDWM list in favour of Eben (or Liz!)
Fantastic keynote. Eben is an engaging speaker and has a lot of enthusiasm for what he’s talking about.
Thank you Mr Upton for reigniting a passion of my childhood.
The lack of Robot Wars on TV must be contributing!
