Boston crane accident

Boston crane accident

Originally uploaded by kosso.

Just earlier, up the road from the office here in Boston, a large piece of crane holding up a construction gantry on the front of Emmerson College, facing Boston Common came away from the building and fell on top of a car killing all three people inside. A pedestrian was also killed in this tragic accident.

UPDATE: It turns out that the victim count was three. One man in a car and two construction workers. Two shocked survivors, who were friends, were in driving together through Boston in two seperate cars and one car had pulled between them. This was the car which was crushed. 

Another man who managed to walk from the accident, after having his car severely damaged from above is the grandson of former Boston mayor, John Hynes.

The were two more people injured in this tragic accident, which could be heard around the area as the lift supports of the construction gantry came crashing down this afternoon.

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.
