5 Things You Didn’t Know about Me

It has only just occurred to me what this post from Bre Pettis was all about. Something to do with a post by Jeff Pulver here 😉

OK here goes:

1. I used to love acting. Probably still would if given the time/chance 😉 That’s me in the photo aged 17 in a Vaudevillian role. I had over half the lines in the play which I learned the night before dress rehearsal by recording my cues and lines to a tape cassette and falling asleep with headphones on. It worked 🙂

2. I’m half German, but don’t speak it. I should learn (again after lessons at school). It’s strange, sometimes I understand it spoken and I can get the gist of it when reading, with a little help from dictionaries, but I can’t speak it fluently.

3. I have attended 13 years of Glastonbury Festival – the best festival in the world (and only 25 mins drive from where I grew up – hehe!)

4. The name ‘Kosso’ is a nickname derived from my surname, which is ‘Kossmann’. When I was at school, people called me ‘Kossy’. When I was at college I was known as ‘Kossa’. People tend to call me ‘Koz’ alot these days. Can’t think why 🙂

5. I believe that so-called extra-terrestrial visitors are actually inhabitants of Earth from the future, coming back to obtain various resources since depleted. Sightseeing time-travelling tourists too! If we do manage to survive on this planet for another couple of thousand years, we will have gone through many changes caused by the increase in radiation levels from the sun, over time. This could include natural eye protection and potential lack of genitalia. Ouch! 😉

Nanoo-Nanoo! 🙂

OK. So, let’s see then. How about Tom, DrFran, Mark, Chris and Jerry

[edit: I just swapped out Dave for Dr Fran who (still) reads this blog ;p ]

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 podcast.com 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.
