WordsofAwesome meets Raspberry Pi

About a year ago I had this idea of mounting a monitor outside my room instead of a whiteboard to post my #wordsofawesome on. I didn’t do it because I needed to hook the monitor to a computer and that require long cords, drills, and probably getting permission.

This monitor is hooked up to a Raspberry Pi and is running a @dakboard which is liked to my #wordsofawesome Google Photos album. Now I can update that folder at any time with new quotes and, because the computer will be attached to the back of this monitor, I can mount this monitor anywhere I have power. This will get mounted outside my classroom or office and everyone knows where to find me plus get daily inspiration.
