This is not a flashy post with lots of pictures and farkles. It’s a thank you note.
In February 2012 we started selling the Raspberry Pi (you may not have heard the story—it went pretty well ;)). A year later we moved into a small office. There were six of us.
Less than a year later we stormed the penthouse floor of the same building and have been there ever since. (We even have our own fridge now so we don’t have to write our names on our pies with a Sharpie). And here we are three years later—things have gone swimmingly and we’ve picked up one or two awards (OK, lots) along the way. We love getting awards but not (just) in a big-headian way. They are a confirmation that we are doing something right and doing something good.
Last night I travelled on the InterCity to London to attend the first ever Inquirer Tech Hero Awards (Liz and Eben are away and I was sent because I most resemble him physically). We were nominated in three categories: The Raspberry Pi 2 won ‘Best Product’ and Eben won ‘Tech Champion’. We had a great night, chatted to a load of people and we brought back two impressive chunks of glass that say, “Keep doing your thing, it’s good.”
So thanks to the Inquirer and to everyone who voted. But the biggest thank you goes to our amazing, unique and lovely community. We wouldn’t be here without you. Cheers.
