I am now ready to share my new website with you all. You can find it here. In addition to what it says on the website we will also be selling:

  • LED products, eg jewellery items
  • t-shirts and other merchandise

and in the longer term we will also be designing and hosting websites for other micro-business in the local area although this will most probably be under a different brand.

At the MediaShed I am currently writing a document entitled "MediaShed Micro-Businesses". This will describe how we intend to support small-scale local businesses from their initial idea through to "going to market". We will also brand such businsess with a logo that says something like "Member of the MediaShed Business Network".

I am also involved in the setting up of a bricks and mortar shop at the MediaShed to sell the products and services that the businesses produce. Over the past week we have been thoroughly decorating the MediaShed to reflect the new theming of the new website.

Please note that the new MediaShed website goes live tomorrow.
