Watch out ‘coz Odeo’s comming –
Droped by web pioneers Noah Glass and Evan Williams, Odeo was annouced at the TED conference last week – did i wrote about the TED conference yet? If your answer is yes, what a good reader you do!
So yeah, i was a little late on reading my feeds, took some-kind-of-weekend-off. But here’s one of most promising start up related to podcasting.
Evan Wiliams on Odeo:
Odeo aims to enable this new distribution channel and medium by creating the best one-source solution for finding, subscribing to, and publishing audio content.

Who is and what will Odeo be? from the NYT coverage on Odeo:
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.(blablabla)Compared with the other various approaches so far, Odeo (pronounced OH-dee-oh) means to be podcast central – an all-in-one system that makes it possible for someone with no more equipment than a telephone to produce podcasts and also makes it possible for users to assemble custom playlists of audio files and copy them directly onto MP3 audio players. The company plans to make money by selling audio content and advertising and, eventually, software for producing and editing podcasts.
