That is…remarkable. I *do* like a timeline that starts with On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungs problem and finishes with us. I seem to have totally lost my sense of proportion.

Nice to see the Raspberry Pi mentioned in the Observer article, though I'd have to seriously question any timeline that leaves out not only the Apple Macintosh but the entire post-Apple II home computer revolution...

I've just been sent a pdf of the Linux Format article - it really is great. Hearty recommend (if you haven't already spent all your pocket money by Thursday).

PC Pro, page 16, more focused on UK tech taxes but a clear mention of Raspi and Dr Fascinating Pants.

I note that the RasPi is now on Hot UK deals:

So much for keeping this reasonably quiet (ie under 12000)

So many articles and blog posts since 28th, its hard to know where to start.  I'm going to ignore the obvious candidates and go for this one:

Why the Next Steve Jobs Needs a Raspberry Pi, Not Patents

Linux Foundation Executive Director shares why he's excited about the Raspberry Pi and how it can put the power of computing into anyone's hands...

Two of the many stories covering the launch:

The Raspberry Revolution

Even usually stoic techie types are excited this week by the launch of the Raspberry Pi. So excited, in fact that on Wednesday, launch day, 29 February the sales website crashed. A slightly smug apology was posted blaming "a very high level of traffic". This minor technological embarrassment is better than any PR the developers could have bought.

So what's all the fuss about? How can a small red box, thought up by scientists in Cambridge, inspire such a lot of interest?

Demand for Raspberry Pi, the British £22 computer, crashes website 

Design intended to inspire schoolchildren and adults to program sees overwhelming demand as first versions go on sale.

Raspberry Pi network plan for online free-speech role

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/tech.....y-17231698

… developer and security researcher Nadim Kobeissi hopes that it might do something more: bring secure communications to those who need it most, people whose free speech is threatened whether in countries like Syria or in the west.

What Ubuntu Can Take Away From The Raspberry Revolution

http://techlaze.com/2012/03/wh.....evolution/


When it comes to cheap, affordable computing, there hasn’t been much success so far...  The Raspberry Pi however, has managed to spark a revolution for Linux like the iPhone did for Apple.

I've written a couple of articles about the Pi on my mainly apple site at fryguy128.com . They should be the 2nd and 3rd posts on my site at the moment.

Article in todays Metro and on their website:

http://www.metro.co.uk/news/89.....z1oGYogwcx

I assume this part of the article is incorrect:

"The 10,000 that were sold were pre-ordered – they are now being manufactured in Taiwan and China to meet customer demand, with the first units expected to arrive in the next few weeks."
