Plazes are Gone

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... It was 2005 and we were all excited about the new 2.0 revolution.

 I remember when, in If my memory serves me well, that year of 2005, I was gently invited by Kosmar to be on Plazes - one of the first two-dot-zero adventures, one of the first social-based web based app; developed and designed by a company based in Berlin. We , after all are all euros, after all.

As pioneers we were devoted to all that brave and furious new thing the web was evolving into. It was in the year 2005.

By July 1st won't be around after that, and all my personal data (including my account info) will be erased.

Now, there is a kind explanation - a wunderbar infographic design - of what has been a life inside Plazes. And, once logged in, and I am able to download this a piece of personal history that belongs to my life, a digital life shared with friends from allover the world.

In the year 2005 there was no location, near-field apparels, neither maps to tell one where has it been or what did you like.

As for today, Plazes has been acquired by Nokia ( formerly known as Microsoft ); and it's time to me to say good-bye.

It's been a great journey.
