Podcasting Lectures at the U of A

Duane Szafron is a Computing Sciences professor at the University of Alberta. He’s also a podcaster. Sadly, being both a podcaster and a professor is currently a fairly rare combination, but I hope the work of Szafron and others will change that: “I think it makes it harder for people who give fairly boring lectures….

Odeo bought by SonicMountain

Back in February I posted about Evan Williams and Obvious Corp. trying to sell Odeo. I hadn’t heard anything since then, so I kind of figured they were unable to find a buyer. Turns out they did though. From TechCrunch: Details are just coming out, but New York based SonicMountain, a new startup, has acquired… Reads more »

What we have is a failure to communicate!

Tom Webster of Edison Media Research was on hand at the recent Corporate Podcasting Summit in London, where he talked about a new research report that shows podcasting isn’t growing much. There’s been a lot of discussion about the findings, but I don’t think they are cause for concern. I think Tim Bourquin has nailed… Reads more »

Download Requests Alone Are Pretty Useless

Back in December I said that podcasters should gather and share as much statistical data as possible. It is now exactly three months later and, surprise-surprise, I still feel that way. The topic resurfaced on Saturday when Adam Curry from PodShow posted about the number of download requests the PodShow network has received: For the… Reads more »

Use podcasting to get your book published

Interesting piece in the New York Times yesterday about authors using podcasting to get noticed and ultimately, to get their books published.

The podcast books also use music… Reads more »

Northern Voice Conference Day

We just finished recording the keynote session with Anil Dash at Northern Voice 2007, and I am now in the “Blogging 101″ session. The recording is going fairly well, and the audio recorders have picked up the presenters better than I expected given all the background noise you get when everyone has a laptop in… Reads more »

Podcasting Northern Voice 2007

I am leaving bright and early tomorrow morning for Vancouver – Megan, Dickson, Sharon and I are heading to Northern Voice 2007. It’s a conference I look forward to every year. I’m especially excited about this year because we have volunteered to record all of the sessions! Here’s what I sent to Darren: We’re hosting… Reads more »

Wanna buy Odeo?

Hard to believe that just two years ago Odeo was a star. Heck, they even have a star in their logo! Over that period of time, they have slowly but steadily faded from the spotlight. And now even Odeo’s founders don’t want to keep it around: It seems likely Odeo is worth more to someone… Reads more »

Podcasting is just getting started!

Alex Nesbitt wonders over at Digital Podcast if podcasting is podfading. I don’t think it is, and I don’t think the graphs that Alex presents prove anything. Scott Bourne wrote a response today, but I think he sorta danced around the big point. He says: Another reason that I think podcasting is still going strong… Reads more »
