: Now I can take the gag out of my mouth: Blogger cocreator Ev Williams, one of the handful of people who made blogging happen, is now moving his attention to Podcasting with a new company to enable people to create and find and play audio. He showed it at TED and The Times wrote it up today. When Ev showed me the plan a bit ago, I was jumping up and down on the couch: We need this kind of work to make the inventions of the pioneers — Adam Curry, Dave Winer, et al — ready for mere mortals and prime time. I’m also glad they’re thinking advertising support from the start. And the possibilities are endless (think vlogs). Ev hitched up with Noah Glass, who started Audblogger, an idea whose time has now come. Here is Ev’s post on how it happened. Here is Odeo.
