Audio and VideoCasting heats up with $15 million to Podshow

Congrats to PodTech competitors Podshow, who just got $15 million in a second round of VC financing, John Furrier learned. Can’t wait to see Adam Curry and team at the Podcast and Portable Media Expo (I’ll be traveling down there this afternoon, drop me a line if you wanna get together. My cell phone is always on my blog — over there on the right side. No, down lower.)

Looks like things are going to get even more interesting in the new media world.

  1. College students in the USA aren’t interested in podcasting, yet. I have found only 8 groups on podcasting at Facebook. The biggest one is about Diggnation. But there’s hope. The group called “Apple students” has 562,008 members. Robert, I think Podtech.net should engage these folks.

  6. PodShow is a joke. They haven’t figured out if they are a podcasting network, a podcasting directory, a record company, an advertising network, or a social network. They chose all of the above and their web site reflects this. It is almost impossible to figure out, barely usable, and so very cheesy.

    It seems that you have to sign up with PodShow to simply download an mp3 from their web site. I looked at their privacy statement and they seem to think that an IP address is “non-personally-identifiable information”. Adam should know better than that considering how he got busted for trying to anonymously edit his Wikipedia entry. Curry lost my attention when he decided that podcasting was all about podsafe music.

  11. If I see this once more… :-)

    Podcasting was originally coined, not by Adam Curry or Dave Weiner, but by a Brit (and we’re rather proud of that). Ben Hammersley of The Guardian, sometime in February 2004 when talking about this new combination of “MP3 Radio” and RSS feeds. Podcasting was one of the names he suggested for it.

    Anyway, back to just reading…

  14. Adam Curry? Isn’t he the guy that came up with the nonsensical term “podcast” that we’ve been stuck with ever since? That’s what the tech community gets for following the lead of a VJ. :p

  17. Thanks for the link over the Mr. Furrier’s blog. Hadn’t seen that until now… One more RSS feed to watch!

    BTW, why’s he still linking to you as the “Microsoft Geek Blogger” from the index page of his blog? Kind of odd… You’re a made man now! :)
