Something really cool happened while building the blogHUD

Since knocking together this little site and HUD system, it strikes me that something really cool is happening. I somehow feel more ‘connected’ with people. It’s a great feeling and I wonder how many other HUDslingers feel the same.

As the posts go by on, and also on Tao Takashi’s, from RL I can watch the news and stories of experiences or issues just keep on coming. I love it!

It’s a ‘River of Life’ – teaming with RSS. I get to connect with people who share my passion for virtual worlds, coding, creativity and innovation. Priceless.

Also, there was this magical feeling when I got my head round learning how to connect to other blogging systems – something I had avoided doing for ages – and realising what could happen here. I know I’m not alone in doing this process too, btw. There are all these SL blogs out there , where the authors have to leave SL and go to post back in RL. Surely, that must be a pain. You might lose the moment of inspiration which triggered you to post in the first place.

So, I have to say it was incredibly cool to just get more support for external blogs working. Cool because there are people out there, already posting about SL, on their own blogs, hosted on their own servers, who can now say something in SL and have it suddenly appear on their RL blog.  When you try it – and you see that first post, I think you’ll see what i mean about that magical feeling! 🙂

Happy HUDslingin’! 🙂

    Great Website! It helps me a lot with my tough homework. I’m not so hot in that class 🙂 Thanks for the hard work, keep it up!

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.
