Several short presentations about the Raspberry Pi 4 and other SBCs


Several short talks by Brian, Federico, and Bob.

Brian DeLacey discusses and demos the latest Raspberry Pi 4 developments
and news about IPFS. Demos will cover power saving RPi firmware updates,
a recent Raspbian release, and using the RPi as a "dual HDMI daily
driver". Now the RPi4 is an even "cooler board", and we'll try to solve
the mystery of leaking radio frequency. We'll also discuss how to use
IPFS and RPi to "pin down" the latest developments on the distributed
web. This is DeLacey's fourth in an ongoing series of short talks about
the RPi.

New IoT Hardware: Federico Lucifredi will review the capabilities of the
brand new 64-bit SheevaPlug that just landed in his lab.

Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at
Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux
"Systems Management Czar" at SUSE.
Bob is probably best known as co-creator of the original spreadsheet
application, VisiCalc. His detailed bio is at

On-Campus Free Parking (These parking lots are free after 5pm)

The Amherst Street/E51 parking lot is the best parking option. It
probably will have plenty of spaces. During the school year the lot
tends to be full, but tends to clear out after 6:30 or 7PM.

Due to the never-ending construction, Sloan's Hermann Garage is only
accessible via Main Street. It is a small garage without a gate, and
directly under the Sloan library.

All other MIT lots require permits after hours.

The closest public parking
is Kendall Center Green Garage, next to the Marriott Hotel. The entrance is
90 Broadway Street. For other parking options, see

All Cambridge parking meters use Passport by Phone:
This is active on all Cambridge metered parking spaces. Meters are free
after 8PM
