About me:

hello! i'm lars. i was part of the group of folks working at myspace.com circa 2005-2006 prior to and during the newscorp buyout, and i worked in early social media beta-testing, prototyping, and design in the early 00s prior to that. my myspace profile was myspace.com/turbo. since then i've done a bunch of other stuff in various industries. and now i'm here, apparently!

these days i'm a father, a multi-disciplined creative professional / consultant, a DJ, and a staunch advocate for leftist politics as well as an advocate against the algorithm-manipulated and datamined hell that (anti)social media has become.

i live in san francisco, and my personal website is larsbamble.com

Who I'd like to meet:

anyone! say hi if you like ✌️

Thanks for accepting. I visited your Vero profile. What do you like about Vero besides the lack of algorithms and a bit more privacy?

thanks for connecting!

i initially moved to vero when ello sort of went to shit and lost its branding direction, along with a few other ex-ello folk i knew.

i like the fact that vero has the same ethos backbone (no algorithms, no datamining, etc) that ello had when it started, but with a much better sense of UX design that doesn't get worse with every update. it's also been good for building a reasonable amount of organic reach and is a nice secondary photography portfolio of sorts to link to from my professional website as well. it's been good for actually meeting a few people in person as well. basically most everything i'd want from an online sharing platform.

i do wish they'd expand it to give the vero website the same amount of usability as the app, since app-only platforms aren't my favorite way to share things, but it has enough good going for it otherwise that i've stuck around on it longer than most of its peers, and it seems to continue to see slow but steady growth.

cheers and likewise! i basically completely bailed on the social media industry once facebook took over because i saw everything going in a rapidly unethical direction. i'm glad to have discovered this site - hope it sticks around! FWIW you can find me on vero as well, which is another app-based social sharing platform worth checking out that has zero algorithms or datamining. ✌️
