Social Fleshworking

Yesterday, Dave Winer says that ‘It’s time to open open Social Networking again‘ – I agree. (Though I will add that I wasn’t aware anything had ‘closed’ ;)

At about the same time he posted that, while sat here in a hotel in Cambridge MA, I get a tweet from a buddy who says there’s an impromptu Boston Twitter meetup going to happen in town tonight.

So, my mind starts ticking for a second, and bang!! I buy tweetup.com – hehe
I can already see a global network of communities building around it, ON TOP of the Twitter ‘platform’ – think multi-lingual global cityname subdomains. Aggregate feeds of each, connected by the participants of the communities. boston.tweetup.com, london.tweetup.com, melbourne.tweetup.com etc, etc.

I *know* you get the picture. )

All this will need a calendar system of course. ;) Or we’ll all be late / early! ha!

I’ve met so many people in ‘real life’ (IRL) via Twitter actually.

Let’s turn colliding, fleeting, passing electrons into flesh-pressing real relationships.

This is BIG!!

And, my friends – the planet is SMALL! A LOT smaller than you think.

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.
