Kirkless council is actually pretty good at putting money into good
projects. One of the things they've started is the TEST digital research
centre at the Kirklees Media Centre - http://www.test.org.uk
TEST is actively seeking industry partners for combined projects that aim
to both train the local population for new media work and support small
companies who otherwise couldn't afford to do experimental research. And
they're going to have a phenomenal amount of kit to do it with. (And
hopefully actually do stuff with it, so it doesn't sit idle like the ICA

Of course, the fact that TEST is run by my twin brother has *nothing* at
all to do with this public service announcement . . . . ;)
