The Power of RSS and linkage

Here’s a little factoid for ya. This is what happens to your blog stats when you find a phone with an RSS button on it and Dave Winer links to it over on Scripting News. Impressive 😉 And gratifying.

Talking of Dave, he wrote a very poignant post today about the longevity of his content, his blog, his life’s work over on Scripting News. I had the pleasure of listening to Charlie Nesson a couple of times. Brilliant, thoughtful and inspiring.

Yesterday, I paid up another year for my server. That can’t happen forever for everyone. Hopefully one day I’ll host all at home as part of my connectivity package. Hosting aside, there’s much scripting going on around the place. I have old demos which won’t work unless I kick a cron job off again. So much dynamic content would not work without editing a config file, for example.

The Samsung ‘Feed Phone’

I have to say – that post about the RSS-buttoned phone below is now officially the most popular post on my WordPress blog EVER. Previously, it was a post about Saddam being hanged.

So it’s official – RSS is more popular than Saddam! ) Hurrah!

Also, I think it’s funny when people say ‘I cant confirm this’, or ‘this could be a fake’ – I promise you this is not a fake.

I think this was one of the most important things I saw at 3GSM. This was also not the only phone I saw which had a an RSS application – but it was the only one with a dedicated button.

And no – I didn’t see any ‘My Atom’ apps. Or buttons with ‘Atom’ on it.

The only trouble I did see though, was a slight lack of knowledge about what to do with enclosures. And representing podcast.com, I have offered our assistance ;)

Samsung WiBro with RSS button!


This WiMAX enabled device from Samsung has an app called ‘My Feeds’ in it, which reads your RSS feed subscriptions. Also supports OPML import/export. Not podcasts yet though. But a great big RSS button! 🙂

UPDATE: I think it’s hilarious that some people question the authenticity of this image. I really have better things to do than to PShop phones 😉

There’s a better photo on the post above with the rest of the original photos of it, with shots of the application it kicks off.

UPDATE: Peter Rojas from Engadget has picked up on this, as has Dave on Scripting News, who has rather less to say apart from making cheeky graphics with punctuation ;p (_!_)

UPDATE2: Peter Rojas has confirmed the model as the SPH-M8110

BlackJack is a Samsung??

Wow. Then I’m not surprised to see that RIM is suing Samsung for calling their new device the ‘BlackJack

I saw the ads for this recently, while over in the States : I thought it was the new BlackBerry! I didn’t even notice the marque, while the phone was being flipped around like a deck of cards.

Well, well, well. It looked nice, that’s for sure.

BlackJack is my favourite Casino game by far.

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.
