Bear deadlock

We’ve been choosing bear names for the competition today. A name has been chosen! See our latest post to find out what it was. We ended up with a shortlist of the best names, and set to voting.

Competition: name our bear!

In about a month’s time, we’re going to be launching a brand-new range of Raspberry Pi merchandise. (My desk is currently awash with notebooks, gym bags, pencils, mugs, umbrellas and…stuff.)

The event we were at yesterday (at which we won a paperweight proclaiming that Eben is Cambridge’s most influential business person, a rather phallic... Continue reading
