Timothy Lord caught up with Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/) product leader Eben Upton (http://interviews.slashdot.org/story/11/09/14/1554243/eben-upton-answers-your-questions) at CES. The long-awaited $25 Linux single-board computers are finally being shipped from the Chinese factory where they're being assembled and will be available for sale in just a few weeks. Eben talks not only about the Raspberry Pi boards and the add-on Gertboard (http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/500), but about the eBay auction that helped finance Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/482). Timothy says he considers Eben Upton one of his "personal tech-world heroes." After watching this video, maybe he'll be one of yours, too. Read on below to watch.
