Archive for May, 2006 LIVES!

While sat here at OPML Camp, I just tore down the login page to PODCAST.COM so you can all come in and have a look. There is still ALOT of work to do and much of it is not complete yet. But you should get the idea.

One of the main things we'll add soon is a decent feedback mechanism fo you to tell us what you thing. Please read the 'develupdates' and 'more info' links to find a brief explanation of where we're at.

Early days – exciting times!! 🙂

here's basically what we want to do :


SYO Expansion

Well, it looks like things are going well for DanMac and Dave on the SYO project. Things are moving on.

Good for them. 😉
Maybe if things between Dave and I had been different, well, maybe things would be *different*. 😉 SYO shares among other things like OPML and RSS, some similarities to the core of the / treedia system, I've been developing (on my own) since back in November.

I'm just putting some finishing touches to the search facility here, then I hope to able to reveal more at the OPML Camp which starts in a few hours.

It's a shame that CCTV (Cambridge Community TV) aren't involved, or we could stream a video of the event to you all, and through to the Second Life Berkman Center video screen. Hmm , maybe they are? I don't know, but they did a grand job at the Beyond Broadcast event last week.

OPML Camp this weekend

Yes, I’m over here in Cambridge, MA for the OPML Camp taking place this weekend at the Berkman Center in Austin Hall. Looking forward to seeing what others turn up and finding out about some cool stuff.

I got hold of a new MacBookPro while here. Very nice and fast. (And runs Second Life much better than others PCs I have – for now)

I tried installing an OPML Editor to it, but the docs seems to be out of date. I heard about a fresh Mac installer a while ago but I can;t seem to find it anywhere. Anyone have any pointers?

The version I tried to install from a fresh download (on Windows too) just won;t update to the latest version. It complains the the ‘updateTool’ has not been defined. Seems odd.

I’ve been uber busy since being here since last weekend for the Beyond Broadcast event, set up by Jake Shapiro from PRX/Berkman. What a great time that was. Geat set of people there.

Again, the lack of a working OPML Editor stopped me blogging (as easily as I would like) about it. I need help!!

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.
