I'll be linking to coverage of the project here. If you see something I've missed (there's plenty) that you think people would like to read, or if you've written something yourself, please add it below (an admin or mod will add your articles to the bottom of the first post and delete your post)! I'm skipping posts and articles which rehash stuff we've posted in the blog here or which just reproduce our press releases.

Not all the press is up-to-date or even particularly correct, but there's not a lot we can do about it; I have been leaving comments on some of the more egregious examples. I do like the CNet France suggestion that the alpha board is "moins James Bondienne" than the tiny USB-key-sized prototype that we couldn't fit all the ports on!

Newest material at the top of each section.

Articles and Blog posts

http://www.eweekeurope.co.uk/n.....ower-38185 - Eweek Europe, with a bit of curious research (this is the first I've heard of a 12-month trial) - but I'll let them off, because they're the first bit of press to actually mention *me*. They have even invented a job title for me. I am preening a little.

http://www.bnet.com/blog/techn.....t-25/12561 - Bnet (a bit of CBS) are worried about what we mean for the future of the PC industry. (Come on, PC industry - display some adaptability!) (30 Aug 2011)

This $25 computer (yes, computer!) also runs Quake 3 - GamesBeat on the Q3 demo. This sort of coverage, incidentally (and the amount of it), is why we opened with a FPS demo rather than the kiddie tutoring software that I know a few people wanted; I'm really pleased to see the games press are excited about this too. (29 Aug 2011)

http://gizmodo.com/5835521/thi.....-quake-iii - Gizmodo, where the commenters can't for the life of them work out how big the device is meant to be. (Anybody want to go and help them out?) (29 Aug 2011)

http://www.thinq.co.uk/2011/8/.....on-market/ - Really nice piece from Thinq, mostly based on the Bletchley Park talk. All it needs to make it perfect would be getting [s]Ebon's[/s] Eben's name right! (29 Aug 2011)

There's a two-page interview with David and Eben on pp18 and 19 of this month's Games™ magazine. At the moment, the interview is only in the paper version - it may appear later on their website (http://www.gamestm.co.uk).

Thank you *very* much for the transcript, Tom. I was hoping CFL would provide a transcript and didn't have the time to transcribe it myself - very grateful!

Content was OK, but perhaps the worst presenters of a podcast I have ever heard! Mind you, I don't get out much.

I have to admit I had to stop the podcast several time and was barely holding on going "talk about the Raspberry! Talk about the Raspberry already!"

But I love hearing what people have to say about the r-pi, so it was worth it!

This is really a marker post, even though I subscribed to the mailing list, I seem to be missing updates.

I assume replies to this thread will be notified by email?

Sorry if its the wrong thread.

Yeah, posts like this need to go over in the "Off Topic" area of the forum ;) Good news/bad news time though. The good news is that you have not been missing e-mail updates. There just haven't been any sent out. The best way to keep up to date is to either browse through the forum regularly, or subscribe to the front page RSS feed. The bad news is that posting in this thread will not mean you get an automatic e-mail from my reply. If you have any more questions about this, please start a new topic in the appropriate subforum :)

And here's the reason I've stayed up until midnight - this is a lovely long article from tomorrow's Observer (the Guardian's Sunday sibling) about Raspi, the state of UK computer education and…more Raspi. There's a nice interview with Eben at the end, too. Note our handsome hand model.

More Slashdot about Raspi - happily, not pointing at us this time (our servers wept blood yesterday), but at Thinq. Added at the top of the thread, but also posting here for now so the thread updates.
