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.

Geeks3d - nice article aside from the fact that they don't seem to realise that the Raspberry Pi *is* the computer, not a board to stick in one!

Nice meaty one from Electronics Weekly, and it's much better-researched than many of the other articles we've seen.

Author is uncredited (unless I missed the attribution), but looks like they've spent some time on the forum.

They've also reused some previously unpublished info from an interview they did with Eben in (I think) around May.

This is a bit depressing - the blog of an ex-ICT teacher who has found a lot of reasons to dislike Raspberry Pi.

He does have a couple of valid points but I think some things when wheeeeeee over his head.

don't get too down though. go have a nice glass of wine and plot nasty things you could shove through his letterbox :)

I think the coding output of some of those CS grads he seems to think the UK is making fit for industry should be a start. (Look, everyone! We've learnt all about CSS! Give us a job doing PCB design!)

the table he used actually seemed a bit useless. it was only the number of people entering degree programs no those exiting with a qualification. out of those 11,605 11,604 may drop out

There are also a world of different degree courses covered by that CS heading. Still - I am now feeling a lot less special on discovering I have the country's #1 most common degree.
