Hi, Rogerio!  Hope you are doing great!  :D

Hey, congratulations!  It sounds fun!  Let's translate "The Folha de São
Paulo" article, dear?  I will have a busy and messy day, but will try to
make a first draft.  After it, I will ask for your review.  My English is
always a bit disastrous, hahaha!!!  ;D

Wish you all lots of love and an amazing day!  <3

you can with it, and make it the life you want to live."  -  Mae Jemison

Subject: <nettime> Introducing Unnon: The Network of the Unknowns

Dear nettimers,

I'm contacting you all to say that Unnon, the network of unknowns, is
becoming a reality. Unnon is now available in its first version, for iPhone
users, at Apples's App Store. Android and Web versions should come in
January or February.

A few days ago, we were the subject of a story by Folha de S.Paulo, the
biggest Brazilian newspaper, which meant Unnon became officially launched
in Beta. The response so far has been very good, with many people praising
Unnon for finally creating an environment with no filter bubbles.

We've achieved that by developing the first ever social network with
temporary connections. That means that not only does Unnon connect people,
but it also disconnects them. That is why Unnon is the network of unknowns:
it connects people who do not know each other, for up to 30 days only, and
after that they can never be reconnected. So filter bubbles are never
formed, barriers between people are naturally broken, and users' networks
change all the time. Also: there's no private messaging on Unnon, every
conversation is public, which makes personal attacks, trolling and criminal
activity much less likely; and all content disappears after one month, for
Unnon is about what people think at a particular moment, not what they did
in the past.

This is our revamped website:

And our page on the App Store:

The Folha de S.Paulo article, which is also attached in this email (in

Over the next few months I will showcase Unnon at universities, and have
conversations and debates in Europe. I would love to take the concept of
the network of unknowns to internet and tech-related communities and hope
that Unnon will be capable of bringing a new perspective to the social
media landscape, with less divisions, less extremism and more dialogue.

If you want to contact us, drop me an email (simoes.rogerio at

Best wishes,
