I think this is great. I wonder how many users Odeo has?
Podcast.com is doing about a tenth of the traffic they state over there, [Uniques: 66,765 Page views: 294,867 over the last 30 days at podcast.com] which I think is not bad considering there are only 4 or five registered users of podcast.com so far, for testing – and three of them are me! 😉
This is encouraging for when we open the doors to sign up. Odeo has some great technology behind their system. In fact I am off out not to see a friend’s company who have just developed something similar – using Open Source 😉
It’s way past time that I met Ev and had a ‘createc’ chat 😉
I’m also interested on how that list of post below his was generated. At first I thought it was a blogger.com thing onlw. Now as I see techment and tailrack in there I know it’s now. But it is more then simple trackback, as far as I can see. I could be wrong – please correct me. ta.
Just a welcome back from me really. A bit of a ramble on about what I have been up to with no format or preparation at all. But better than not doing one at all though, eh? In fact – don’t answer that 😉 More to come! Podcasting by the seat of my pants!!
I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.
Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.
I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.
I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.
I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)
There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
