Some links for you:
- BBC reveals 'Out of London' plans – A whole host of changes to shift the centre of production away from London but with no mention of any change for Birmingham. BBC centres in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland seem the big winners. Update: Original BBC press release does have some good(ish) news for Birmingham.
- IE – Web, Interactive, Design, Brand – One for your RSS feed. Jewellery Quarter based design agency, ie design, have a blog and most of their team seem to contribute. It's a good one as well with plenty of links to cool stuff.
- Gigbeth 2008 set to bring welcome boost to Birmingham’s economy – The figures are impressive and everything but we need to start to think of music events as a key part of urban renaissance (which is the case Parkinson makes I think) that make an underlying contribution to economic competitiveness rather than force events like this to produce figures that are difficult to pin down accurately.
