[liberationtech] Single board mini computers as circumvention tools

Thanks, in essence these single board computers are neutral. Hopefully
by making then more accessible in terms of relative cost creative uses
will be developed from uncommon sources, including school children.

On a simple level these mini devices may also be easier to audit, in
terms of components used, whilst taking account of some closed-source
elements like boot software.

With regards the DJ Palombo's video presentation view that it would not
be plausible that each Ras Pi's unique serial number would not be allied
to a purchaser, I would urge caution, as the device is a still a
developmental model and it would take little effort to record such info
for quality control and basic shipping.

DJ Palombo touched on a few of these issues in his presentation at
CarolinaCon earlier this year.
