Subject: Raspberry Pi Event at Noisebridge, Sat 29-September-2012

More on the Raspberry Pi for those who already OWN a RPi (not to be 
confused with New York State's renown Rensselaer Polytechnic 
Institute[1]) as well as any other interested parties.

In approximately a week-and-a-half, Noisebridge is hosting a 3/4 day RPi 
Event at its 2169 Mission St address in San Francisco [2].
RaspberryPiEvent - Noisebridge
Rob Bishop from the Raspberry Pi Foundation will be coming to visit 
Noisebridge on Saturday, 29-September-2012 at 11am - 5pm. The event is 
free, and open to all!

Somewhat similar to Gary Longoria's aim of using Scratch to teach 
programming to high school students at the UC Berkeley Pre-College 
Academy -- as per the BAD announcement of Tuesday night's BALUG 
meeting [3] -- the Raspberry Pi Foundation itself is a charitable 
organisation founded with the overall aim of promoting the study of 
computer science and related topics, especially at school level. You can 
find out more about the Foundation and the Raspberry Pi at the Raspberry 
Pi website[4].

The Raspberry Pi Foundation's tour will be blogged/vlogged on the 
Raspberry Pi website and they hope to attract RPi enthusiasts and 
hackers/makers from across the areas they'll be visiting, allowing them 
to meet and support the RPi and Hackspace communities. Further detail on 
the Raspberry Pi Foundation US Hackspace Tour here [5]. 

Rob Bishop says that there are now "plenty" of RPi's available at MCM 
Electronics [6], for those who wish to purchase these in advance of the 
Noisebridge event. In addition, RPi's can still be ordered from 
Element14 [7].
