ZDNet interview

We’ve been looking forward to the publication of this interview. Nick Heath, a journalist we really enjoy talking to (largely because he’s not shy about asking awkward questions, which keeps us on our toes) spent a couple of hours with Eben at the factory last year. Figures here are a bit out of date because it’s about two months since the interview took place, and things move fast at Pi Towers. But it’s a great read, and even if you’re steeped in the Raspberry Pi project, it’s worth a look; you might learn something you didn’t know! Read more at ZDNet.

Eben should start that kick starter and see what happens…. would be interesting :)

I think that every single person who used the word “vapourware” (with or without a “u”) last year should be mandated to put £3.14 in the hat.

i’d make the ones who spelt it without the U should put in more so they’ll learn how to spell proper :)

Ethnocentricity at it’s finest.

Agreed.

nah it’s “taking the p*** out of our colonial cousins” at it’s best and maybe a bit of jingoism just for the hell of it. :)

AKA humour, that thing that has been killed by overzealous PC monsters.

The article makes for a very interesting read, but I ragefaced that ZDNet not only did that stupid thing where websites inflate their view count by artificially breaking articles into multiple “pages”, but did so IN THE MIDDLE OF SENTENCES! D:

I think I found one of the mistakes….
The 34-year-old chip architect is genuinely taken aback that demand for the Raspberry Pi proved to be orders of magnitude larger than a small pool of aspiring UK computer engineers.

No way he’s 34!! I haven’t designed squat and I’m not too far behind him in terms of age.

Congrats on all your achevements, Raspberry Pi folks!
