The Big News

Eben Upton, Liz Upton and Craig Richardson visited Buckingham Palace this past week as part of the UK Tech Reception. During their visit they met the Queen and spread the word about the Pi. The Foundation also announced that they (or, at least, their distributors RS and Farnell) have now sold over 3 million units. Quite a result considering the original expectation was to sell 10,000! You can read more about the trip and the announcement on their blog.
