Re: Pricing

I never realised SD cards were like buying foreign currency. I wonder, do you think you could used SD cards as currency if the economic system fell through? Kind of like the technological version of gold

Re: "RASPBERRY PI (and programming in Linux) FOR DUMMIES"

Also what about an introduction. With the aims of the book and what you hope to achieve with it and what people have achieved with this device. Maybe have a small autobiographical section explaining how you got into computer science / programming.

Re: "RASPBERRY PI (and programming in Linux) FOR DUMMIES"

I think you will have to create two versions of the book. One for people in primary schools (pre teen) and one for more adult like people (high school and beyond). Unless you can create a happy medium.

You would need a different title unless you are going to publish under them.

If you went for this title without permission there would more than likely legal action taken against you.

It doesn't matter if they are hideous, wait 10 years and they become vintage. Look at shell suits or a DeLorean.
