On Wednesday May 15, 2013 I presented an updated version of the Raspberry Pi presentation to the Quinte Amateur Radio Club (QARC). You can view or download a PDF of the presentation from here.
You can buy one over the counter from Qkits in Kingston, or mail order from Element 14 (make sure you select country Canada, it then ships customs cleared).
To get started, see here for the hardware and sw setup, and here for more details on the OS. The official Raspberry PI site, wiki, forum are the place to start as things are moving fast, and information gets out of date fast.
I also have a number of blog posts on things I have done with it (some of which may actually be outdated, as new and better ways to do things are emerging all the time)
A number of the PERC and QARC members have purchased rPIs and we have started a SIG mailing list. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be on the list.
On Wednesday October 4, 2012 I repeated this presentation at the meeting of the Kingston Amateur Radio Club where there was also a lot of interest.
On Thursday September 20, 2012 I made a presentation and demonstration of the Raspberry PI to the Prince Edward Amateur Radio Club.
