Building Ello

Mode Set is a group of creative technologists that helped to build Ello, a new kind of ad-free social network. The work Mode Set does involves lots of thinking, some talking, and some typing. I couldn’t help feeling like I was watching chess: study the board thoroughly, consider options, make a move, see what happens.

There was some some serious 12th degree black belt thinking going on, probably involving logical calculations and mathematical strategies that would leave my curious little abstraction-oriented brain in the dust.

It was very cool to see the team that built Ello, working on Ello. These are makers that enable the next level of makers.
