Hardware, Embedded Systems Raspberry Pi project leader Eben Upton talks about the state of Raspberry Pi, and tells us that yes -- finally -- they now have distributors in the U.S. and other countries instead trying to ship every unit from the U.K. Even better, instead of buying a batch of boards, selling them, and only then ordering another batch, the new distribution agreements mean they can keep a steady flow of orders coming in and going out.

With all the options & toys available, now much more inexpensively than in the 80s or early 90s, computing can be more fun than ever. People just don't exploit it much...
(yeah, the "old times were better" bias here is probably also with how, in the past, seemingly greater proportion of people tinkered - but that's most likely only because ~computers were of less interest for the masses; I wouldn't be surprised if absolute number of tinkerers steadily increased since then)
