design & build the future of the consumer internet

there's a renewed interest in a more contextual, associative, networked future for the internet. one that breaks us from restrictive digital gardens. one that's healthier, freer and safer. a lot of that hinges on how we express ourselves online & how what we express is curated.

we're on a mission to build a creative layer on the internet.

a layer that restores our open digital gardens. a layer where content isn't ephemeral, but appreciates over time as context and connections are added. a layer that creates new opportunities for you and recognizes creative labor. a layer that helps us get to a more serendipitous web.

that's why we're building koodos, and we'd love your help.

we started with a product that lets users add emotional context as indexes or tags to music. we have bold ambitions & it's still day 1.
