Testing News. Hopefully you should be able to read the news coming from BBC News Online’s front page. The Flash here is being driven by an XML feed grabbed from the BBC. I dont think it would work, if the XML file was on the BBC servers.

As I said, this is a test. The original file here was designed to fit onto an iPaq which it does, quite nicely here. This will work over a Bluetooth and GPRS connection, or in your cradle, if the machine is connected and the settings are correct on the device.


Facial hair. Well, a couple of weeks after Glastonbury festival and I have my first shave. First attempt at letting the chin go hairy. Not bad. A bit itchy. But the weather here recently has been too hot for a mandible rug. Maybe I’ll ask it back for a visit in the Winter.


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 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.
