Proposal: Raspberry Pi
We are about half way to full commitment at the moment, with a strong contingent of experienced stack exchange users (often a problem for proposals trying to get into beta).
I imagine that many people, like myself, were holding off until we were able to get our hands on our Raspberry Pi before committing to this proposal, but today I realised that it would be better to have our beta up and running before people can easily get hold of the hardware. Because of this, as one of the 162 followers, I committed today, in the hope that more would do the same.
The standard way of promoting sites, referrals via sharing the proposal on social media are fine, but I think we have an untapped source of potential committers already on other stack exchange sites.
Stack Overflow, Super User, Electrical Engineering and Unix and Linux are all great places for Raspberry Pi questions. But when we ask Raspberry Pi related questions there, it is well worth mentioning this proposal, as this helps bring this proposal to the attention of more experienced stack exchange users who are interested in Raspberry Pi and might be interested in helping to build a community around it.
In addition to these ideas though, do people have any other ideas for how we can get this proposal into beta, even before the devices are freely available?
