wow I wish I was half as into tech/science as you are when I was your age! Welcome to the fourm!Hi!
My name is Hugo and I am a guy who love computers, physics, technology and Linux. The first technical thing I ever learned was how to use the TV-remote. This was when I was three years old and my parents got a new heavy TV. But I don't mean a "large screen" type of TV. I just mean a fat television like they used to look like these days. I've been interested in technology since then.
Now I'm 14 years old and I've been programming since I was 11. I can program in Java, C#, C/C++, Python, Lua etc. On October 9, 2010 was the first time I made a program. It was probably an ordinary "Hello World" application, I don't remember so well. I just remember it was written in Java and (of course) I remember the date, and that I had "copied" it from a book I had . But I lost the desire to code about a year ago. Instead I found Linux (actually I found It long before I lost my desire), and I loved it. It felt much more open than Windows. I had much more control over my computer. So I almost switched to Linux.
My favourite distro was Ubuntu and it still is, I am using Ubuntu 13.04 while writing this by the way. But Linux made me (as you maybe can understand) code much more rarely. It was so much to learn so I didn't have time for programming or anything like that. All programs I ever needed already existed and the most of them was open source. And I didn't code for about half a year. Last time I made a program was when my science teacher (who was educated in Java) gave me a task. He wanted to test me if I could make a test at KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm. And it's one of the worlds best technology universities. But it was very simple, basically just read a file, split each line with information to Strings and Integers, do some basic math and print out the results in the prompt. I finished the program in about 3 hours and I told my teacher, but I never made the test.
I never got into programming again after that. But last summer I found Raspberry Pi. And I thought it maybe could help me get into programming again and teach me much about Linux at the same time.
And here I am!

I'm kris, and I'm lecturer on some private higher education in Indonesia.
I interested with pi and still waiting for my board come from the shop.
I will use pi as an experiment tools and probably will endorse my students to works with pi.

I'm a tech startup enterpreneur, and basicly a geek, so everything that as geeky as the RaspPi should make into my list. In a more serious note, RaspPi with it's cheap price,and simple user interface, opens huge possibility in 3rd world nations, such as Indonesia, where there's huge digital divide yet to be bridged. I wish I can learn a lot of thing about application of RaspPi in various real-world situation.
