Raspberry Pi auction to benefit the Centre for Computing History

As part of the Twelve Pis of Christmas, David Braben (co-author of the classic BBC Micro game Elite) has chosen the Centre for Computing History as his chosen charity and you can bid on one of the first 12 pre-production Raspberry Pi's.


David's choice of charity to benefit from the auction of one of the first 12 pre-production Model A Raspberry Pis (and some other goodies besides) is one that we're all very pleased to see picked out: it's the Centre for Computing History. Established to create a permanent public exhibition that tells the story of the Information Age, the Centre's museum preserves and presents a collection of important computers and related artifacts. It spotlights the people behind the inventions and records the information necessary to inspire and enthuse future generations.

So if you are interested in owning a piece of Computing history, and benefiting our computing history museum, go place your bid now!

We would like to thank David Braben and Raspberry Pi for the very kind donation. It has really made our Christmas!
