Amanda is Unboomed

Looks like Andrew Baron and Amanda Congdon have parted ways on Rocketboom. I’m sure many subscribers will tune over to Amanda’s ‘Unboomed’ feed – if that happens. And I can’t see her having a problem finding someone to point a camera her way. To many people, Amanda was RocketBoom and no doubt is responsible for so many viewers. It will be interesting to see what Andrew does with the RocketBoom brand. Maybe that’s where the disagreement laid.

I would hazard a guess that Amanda has had a big offer she can’t refuse.

Podtech maybe?

UPDATE: It turns out that Andrew found out about it the same way we all did. Ouch.

Ken Lay dies

Wow. I was only just watching Mark Cuban’s ‘The Smartest Guys in The Room‘ on the way home.

Apparently he died of a ‘massive heart attack’.

Atom and RSS – again…

A response to this post from the lead engineer at Amazon.

Does Atom support enclosures. And multiple ones at that?
If so, I would look at creating a toolset to podcast in both formats.

However, that does not mean feeds won’t be broken. So many publishing tool are broken. RSS is ’simpler’ than atom.

If you could show me an example of a podcastable feed in Atom, I’ll make a tool to publish that feed and enclosure.

I don’t want to fan a feed war, but I want to judge by trying to build a feed publishing tool which works.


Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
