UK Budget flies into SL


While the Chancellor of The Exchequer announced the changes in the the Budget for the next year, updates were picked up on a huge red briefcase in Second Life from the Twitter account at http://twitter.com/budget. You could also hear the audio here being streamed through a test shoutcast from my living room. An interesting idea. Which worked! (But could have done with video and more people) 😉

    Good idea Koz, the way you’ve presented it is probably the only way the geek generation would pay attention to the budget 😛

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.
