Songhay System takes kintespace.com into Twitter and YouTube—and beyond

The social-media makeover of kintespace.com is based on new apps developed by Songhay System (which is me @BryanWilhite—which is another way of saying I am still too cheap to turn my company into a corporation). This years-large strategy approaches Twitter primarily as an extension of blogging and YouTube integration has always been a part of the content curation and presentation space of the kintĂ© space. Facebook for the record is currently an extension of Twitter which totally fails to recognize that Facebook is way, way larger than Twitter (this ‘failure’ is by design kids).


For years, the rasx context (Blog) has been stuffed with “Twinks” posts (again, twinks stands for “Twitter links”—I have no idea what this means elsewhere). From a technical view, this Twinks project has been a way to archive my feedly.com picks instead of “trusting” Twitter to preserve my data. I built a system (a lot of it on Windows Azure) to help me automate the process of turning my “tweets” back into Blog prose. From a personal point of view, I have always read the “morning paper” since I was a travel writer at the Automobile Club in the 1990s—90% of my Twitter activity is based on a modern rendition of this personal habit. From a historical point of view, kintespace.com is curating the “Black Twitter” phenomenon—again



Like Instagram, Snapchat and others, I deliberately ignored YouTube in the early years. Now I watch YouTube almost as much (sometimes more) as Netflix. So, from a personal point of view, I have been using my curated YouTube channels ‘player’ on a daily basis. I have one for kintespace.com and one for Songhay System—I consider myself sharing this experience with similarly interested visitors. Both of these players are leveraging Windows Azure and the YouTube Data API. The older folks that visit kintespace.com may find it extremely helpful to find some of the “black stuff” on YouTube curated all in one place.

I am very proud of the BookTuber collection now in the kintĂ© space (many of the selections came from @mynameismarines via @rowenamonde). The younger (millennial) content makers that are doing their own “monetizing” thing with do-no-evil Google can be respectfully recognized in an “old” venue like the kintĂ© space. It’s wonderful to have such continuity here at kintespace.com: from simple static Web pages to cloud-hosted, API-driven apps.

Songhay B-Roll Player

Should you stumble upon brollplayer.azurewebsites.net you will find nothing serious (visually). The curated YouTube channels (and the new HTML 5 audio player that I have not formally announced) are all “powered” by assets at this .net address. This means to be the very, very humble beginnings of the Songhay B-Roll Player. This player will be a suite of apps that will replace almost all of the presentation engines here at kintespace.com. More on this later (or bust)
