Coming to a screen near you: ‘eEnders’?

David Cameron’s vision of a Silicon Valley-style technology hub in London’s Shoreditch district shows spunkiness. Whether the commercial property agents struggling to let empty office space further east in Docklands will share the PM’s enthusiam, however, has yet to be seen.
Local coffee shops with E1 and E2 postcodes should be happy, though, according to the BBC’s ever-insightful technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones: “The start-up crowd, sipping cappuccinos in Shoreditch cafes, has been given a wake-up call from the very highest levels of government,” he blogs
Hats off, meanwhile, to HCL Technologies’ director Bindi Bhullar, who has been fast off the mark to coin the tag ‘eEnd’ to describe the proposed regeneration. “We should all be looking forward to ‘the eEnd’ putting the UK on the world map for technology innovation,” Bhullar declares.
A TV series entitled ‘eEnders’ that combines elements of Channel 4’s ‘The IT Crowd’ and BBC-1’s top soap, must surely already be bubbling away in some programme planner’s mind.
