Well, the Pi blob can be replaced… almost… soon… https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11703842 / https://github.com/christinaa/rpi-open-firmware

Not a ready drop-in replacement yet, but running ARM code with access to the SD card and the UART console is possible!

edit: By the way! The Pi loads all the firmware from the SD card — no reflashable memory on the board AFAIK – which would make it excellent from the "State considered harmful" perspective http://blog.invisiblethings.org/2015/12/23/state_harmful.htm...

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
