Google River Of News

Google Reader’s ‘feed-splicing’. Why don’t they call it a Reading List anywhere? Nice though, that they have a JavaScript snippet to be able to pump a mini-rivulet through your blog template – mmm : expect to see alot more of this soon. Microformats.

    “Reading List” as used by the rest of the aggregation community refers to Dave Winer’s initiative where you can generate an OPML file listing feeds that an aggregator subscribes to and (indirectly) displays the contents of those feeds. While our sharing feature achieves a similar result (going straight a feed instead of using OPML), there would be confusion if we used the same name.

    Though to be fair we did say in the blog post:

    “you can put a clip on your blog with recent items from your reading list”

    See we mentioned reading list!

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.
