The New York Times Homepage

I was just having a look at the New York Times homepage – which I rarely go directly to, to be honest, though I follow deep links to stories and articles.

Was this page designed for Google/Yahoo/MSN/a.n.other search engine, or for ACTUAL HUMANS to view? How can anyone find anything on this page? It’s so unbelievably cluttered!! I’m totally shocked.

Another case of being designed by committee?

Sheesh! Thank goodness for RSS!

Compare this with the BBC News homepage

    Yeah. the BBC one has alot there too, but the NYT just seems like a clusterfuck to me 🙂

    The ‘tab’ graphic there was a mashup of the inside of Dodgy’s ‘Free Peace Sweet’ cover 🙂

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.
