[liberationtech] Single board mini computers as circumvention tools

How about writing a cookbook (suggesting, not volunteering - I wouldn't
know where to start)?
These boards are promoted as educational resources, so maybe this is an
opportunity to educate kids about privacy, security, and liberation tech -
through a "learning by doing" approach, i.e. get a board, and set up your
own "little brother" box..
