NEWSFLASH: GOOGLE IS EVIL?

The plans that google has, for their toolbar (I never use any toolbars, as they are evil – and have always been the root of many problems) to display autolinks over your content, and not in a ‘banner’ space is well out of order.

Go here and check out a great video made by better bad news

It’s a 12 minute Video Blogmash, where the Better Bad News panel re-mixes commentary and analysis of a pending threat to online free speech drawn from several sources. including :

1. Opt Out Petition

2. Dan Gillmor

3. The Scoblizer

4. Dave Winer

5. Cory Doctorow

6. Time

7. Mark Jen

8. Steve Rubel

9. Kas Log

10. Tim Bray

with sonic support from Plastikman.

The Proposed Search Tool, Auto-Link, Redirects Links On Blogs Abridging Author Text, Intent and Meaning.

Fight it.

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.

  • The phrase, to apply for a "leave to remain" just seems ridiculous. 9 hours ago
  • settledstatus .com and .co.uk are available. Someone with the time could make something really useful for all the people wishing to settle. 9 hours ago
