Spinvox Sold You ALL Out To VoxSciences For A Can of Spam

This really pisses me off.

I just got an SMS text from some company called “VoxSciences”, who (probably) do some kind of voicemail to text service like the ill-fated and extremely poorly run Spinvox.

Spinvox, after raising a massive amount of money, over £100million I believe, went tits up after the truth about their technology and earnings came out and the information about how the executives were literally squandering the heap of cash on gifts, cars, weddings, undeserved bonusses, parties and all manner of things unrelated to the actual business.

They ended up selling to their competitor called Nuance.

After all the dust settled there, since the finances were squinted at for some time, all those brave investors got some money back: a whopping £600. Between them.

Yes. You read that right. Six hundred pounds. Between the lot of them.

So.. back to this SMS. I must have tried out Spinvox, back in the day, a grand total of, ooooo, once maybe?

Getting this SMS today can only mean one thing. Spinvox/Nuance just sold the entire customer database and all their mobile numbers to ‘VoxSciences’.

Bloody disgusting, if you ask me. (Which you didn’t, but hey.)

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.
