[clug] Raspberry Pi Zero: US$5 for bare board

A point well made on the Hackernews comment thread about the Pi Zero (
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10631668) is that all of these
hardware options are now so inexpensive that in a first world country like
Australia, the limitation for doing 'stuff' with them is no longer the cost
of the hardware. The limitation has moved to the domain of imagination,
inclination and available time.

I bet more than one Clugger has more than one 'single board computer or
micro controller[1]' thingy sitting on a shelf unused because they are yet
to get a Round Tuit.

[1] Let's not forget that general purpose computers and micro controllers
tend to solve orthogonal problems.
