Evan Williams, late of Google and Blogger, is at it again, with a podcasting service called Odeo.
Here’s the blog about the service, and his own post on the story behind Odeo. And here’s the NYT coverage (reg required).
The primarily amateur Internet audio medium known as podcasting will take a small, hopeful step on Friday toward becoming the commercial Web’s next big thing.
That step is planned by Odeo, a five-person start-up that is based in a walk-up apartment in this city’s Mission District and was co-founded by a Google alumnus. The company plans to introduce a Web-based system that is aimed at making a business of podcasting – the process of creating, finding, organizing and listening to digital audio files that range from living-room ramblings to BBC newscasts.
