Celebrity Stock Market. Phew! I haven’t posted anything in ages! Well, this is one of the things I’ve been up to recently. Celebdaq is a virtual stock market of Celebrities, based on a system written by a friend of mine for his creation, popex.

Once registered, you’re given ten grand of virtual money to spend (no big money prizes I’m afraid) on shares in Celebrities currently in the public eye. Their share prices go up and down based on the column inches they get in the papers each week. I did the broadband Flash console for the Celebdaq site, which they also turned into a regular celebrity gossip TV show on BBC Three. Great stuff!


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.
