I'd bet on Cisco.

I don't particularly care you it is so long as it is as many well rewarded, secure jobs as possible.

If you look at how Cisco is described on Google :
Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) is the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate and collaborate.
Then it would fit the bill, but Tomorrow is going to be the companys first steps in the B2B market and is going to be their first UK based sites which makes me think it's not Cisco.

I doubt 90% of us on here will have heard of whoever it is prior to the announcement.

B2B companies tend to be rather unknown amongst the general public, let alone new start ups.

Think you've misunderstood. Project Tomorrow is a B2C company making it's first steps into the B2B market meaning that we would have heard of it. Hence why Apple is being spoken about a lot because it's fits the bill of B2C, American, technology manufacturer without a substantially sized office in the UK.

Slightly unfortunate calling this Tomorrow given that tomorrow never comes!

Has the announcement of this alleged plan got a date or is the whole thing justa silly rumour?

As I said before calling it Tomorrow is rather unfortunate as tomorrow never comes.

No.

Nobody does.

If I did, which I don't, I would share it with you my Brother. Along with my other Brothers on SSC.

It's one of those public announcements that only happens every now and again. Everything has to be......

Got a feeling it's going to be a big-un. 101% sure it won't disappoint.

It better be good.

Either way, it'll push us towards this ever-evolving goal of becoming Europe's digital city or whatever it is. Can't remember how many sqft of office space is being handed over.. but it's a lot, isn't it?

Based on the sqft of office space figure that Project Digital will take up, how many jobs do we think that'll be?
