One of the most exciting developments this year has been the Sharp Project, based at the old Sharp Factory, just off Oldham Road, north of the city centre.
This is being seen as a “digital growbag”, a new and innovative digital media centre where small businesses, freelancers and community based initiatives can have an accessible and affordable base for developing their activities.
Over the summer I’ve been involved in a series of meetings discussing the services that are going to be available there, everything from instant offices to be created from shipping containers to education and training facilities and from secure data centres to which way the ducts should go to carry our new dark fibre super network which will have a major base at Sharp.
There is now a Sharp Project website through which you can register to recieve news updates and to be kept informed. Much more to come in September.
