LA to NY from the back seat


I found this video ages ago on the web showing the backseat view of the road trip from LA to New York in a few minutes. It’s quite amazing. If I could find who to link this to, I will. I really need to sort out the seating in the KozOdeon. It sucks.

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) 😉

UK Budget 2007 in Second Life : March 21st 2007 : 4.30am SLT


Gordon Brown will make what is likely to be his last Budget Speech, tomorrow in the House of Commons.

Coming from a Twitter account being updated by The Press Association in London which can found at http://twitter.com/budget updates from the House of Commons will be streamed into the virtual world of Second Life at this location.

Search for ‘The RSS Platform’ in world and look for a huge briefcases! Or follow the blogHUD link to a page giving a map at teleportation link.

The announcements will start at around 12.30 PM GMT, which is March 21st 2007 : 4.30am SLT. It might also be good idea to ‘add budget’ to your Twitter account, if you have one. It will only be pumping content for the two hours (or so) of the Budget itself. You could even get it to SMS you automatically using Twitter’s free texting ability.

Scoble’s Rules Of Twitter in SL snapshot


Looks to be working OK now. But needs to refresh on the loop still. Hmm trying to make playlists out of dynamically generated SMIL files.

Twitter Posting with PHP and Curl

As it’s so utterly and incredibly easy to do this, I thought I’d add to the resources of how to post to message to your Twitter account using PHP and Curl.

So, to add to the other PHP scripts I’ve been plonking out here, here is the PHP source code to a simple function which will post to a Twitter account. Send data to it from a form or a service, or even another script, even from an llHTTPRequest from an LSL script in Second Life! Easy and interesting stuff, that messaging. 😉

Here you go: http://kosso.co.uk/twitter/twitterCurl.phps

Second Life and Electric Sheep on MSNBC News

Check out these two clips from MSNBC News. One featuring author Tim Guest and another with Sibley Verbeck from The Electric Sheep Company.

Clips show after the 30 seconds ad.


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.
