Having done some delving, I may perhaps have been unfair to the current directors and staff of Brixton Online Ltd and Brixton Online Training Services (BOLTS) who have been living hand to mouth from various regeneration funding sources.
However, Brixton Online, the original project suffered from a lack of a sustainable business plan when Brixton Challenge funding came to an end. As a result the Lambeth Online community directory of organisations and events seems to have vanished, and hasn't have been picked up by Lambeth borough.
(The obvious exception is the educational contacts on the excellent lambethlearning.com
- which Brixton Online still receive funding for.)
IMO there was also a distinct lack of transparency as to the respective roles of the not for profit company and the commercial TMG hypermedia (now an SE1 based firm).
From a quick Nominet search, it seems that "Brixtonia Ltd" is the current registrant of the brixton.co.uk
domain, which was once the public face of the project.
The domain is still registered at the Brixton offices formerly shared by Brixton Online and TMG, whereas a quick Companies House search suggests that this company's registered office is
at the same address as TMG.
Name & Registered Office:
Company No. 03267556
The domain name now appears to be for sale, with a TMG e-mail contact .
