Wooden tablet: Michael Castor’s PiPad

I’ve actually held this project in my very own sweaty little hands: Michael showed it to me at Maker Faire in NY last September. I’m glad he’s written the project up, because it’s a gorgeous build which really deserves sharing. In his day job, Michael works for MAKE, and has a heavy workload around each... Continue reading

LinuxCon keynote, Maker Faire NYC, Cambridge GCSE Computing news

You’ll notice I’m posting quite late today: it’s because I’m in the US for LinuxCon, so I’m out by a few time zones. (Thanks to Clive for looking after the blog yesterday.) Eben gave a keynote yesterday, immediately after Gabe Newell (who didn’t give any hints about Half Life 3 – sorry, Ryan). The talk... Continue reading

Tokyo: Big Raspberry Jam 2013

Eben and I are going to be out of the UK for much of the rest of May, doing press, meeting partners, visiting Raspberry Pi fans, hanging out with science fair kids and giving talks. We’ll be in Phoenix for Intel ISEF, San Francisco for Maker Faire (come and listen to our talk! We don’t... Continue reading

New York Times article and video

Eben and I flew to the US yesterday, and bought a copy of the New York Times at the airport the moment we landed to read in the cab on the way to our hotel, because we’d been told just before we took off that there was a long¬†article about Raspberry Pi in the business... Continue reading

And I totally forgot to mention…

We won a Makey Award at this year’s Maker Faire NY! The Raspberry Pi’s award was for this year’s Most Hackable Device. Here’s Eben receiving the award from Matt Richardson of Make. (We forgive you, Make, for calling him Ebon.) We need to buy more shelves.... Continue reading

New York, New York!

Eben and I are headed back to the US on Wednesday. We’ve got meetings on Thursday and Friday in New York, then we’ll be at Maker Faire in Brooklyn on Saturday. Eben’s giving a talk on the Live Stage this year about the first, terrifying six months of Raspberry Pi. You’ll also be able to... Continue reading

OK – I lied. THIS is the final video from Maker Faire.

Turned out that George from element14 still had another video up his sleeve. This really is the last one: a short Q&A with Eben and me about the Foundation. I am, as some bright spark will doubtless point out in the comments, really really awkward¬†in front of cameras (which is why you don’t ordinarily get... Continue reading

Eben gives a demo

I think this is the last of the Maker Faire videos – this is proving to be a really busy weekend, so without further comment, here’s Eben, a Raspberry Pi, a big telly and a crowd of people. Thanks again to everyone at element14 who helped us out with this, especially George, who filmed and... Continue reading
