Ben just got his old BBC Microcomputer out of storage and has been hooking it up to his raspberry pi. He'll talk about how the BBC was part inspiration for the Pi, the hardware he needed to make them talk, and a project to use the BBC as a more modern viewdata terminal. If he is feeling strong that day, there will be a live demo.
