OMG! I won! PHREADZ FTW!!

Wow! Thank you TechCrunch!!! I’m blown away by the positive stuff I have had since pitching PHREADZ for your competition to win a ticket to the Being:Digital conference. And also from your great post about it. Such exciting times ahead I hope! Thank You! Thank You!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

[note to self: fix autoplay on the embeddable widget! 🙂 ]

PS: Apologies if the video are slow to load – especially if you’re viewing from outside the UK (where the server is) The site is getting an unnatural amount of web traffic right now! :))

PPS: Obviously if I can get Phreadz to ‘make’ some money, it will be spent on more servers and bandwidth for the system. I got all I could afford to build it to the state it’s in now.

the data centre where the server is hosted appears to be having some routing problems just now. they’re on the case. It’s affecting all their customers and visitors from certain countries.

    Oh, now I understand better why I can’t watch videos from Phreadz on my favorite blogs.

    Well I guess I should be graceful and congratulate you on this success and not feel frustrated instead because I can’t even email you (being told by the daemon that I am an awful virus, who would have guessed).

    Very happy for you, and hope the best outcome and long life to Phreadz. Take care (you got my email there if you can trust me not to be a virus).

    I know there’s VC hate in web 2.0, but can’t anyone out there give this project some funding?

    ha! Thanks Seamus! 🙂 And I totally agree! 🙂

    but this is ‘web3.0’ baby! 🙂 – semantic multimedia goodness

    It’s all in the PHREADZ 🙂

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.
