Odeo for Sale

Evan Williams (evhead) is putting Odeo on the selling block. Like Blogger (another Evan invention) pioneered blogger, Odeo pioneered podcasting. But also like Blogger, Odeo is struggling to make a go of it. It wasn't until Google bought Blogger from evhead that it really took off. A similar move by Odeo could do the same.


There are lots of people trying to make a dent in this market and it will eventually make some people rich. Podcasting and videocasting will be very big over the next 5 years. You can put your money on that. But, what people want and what geeks are delivering are not one and the same. People want to be the next Internet superstar, or at least pretend they are. They want broastcasting, chat, videocasting, podcast and vidcast management, etc.

I almost saw this at blogTV.ca. It was pretty close, except that you have to register to view the broadcast and they geo-block everybody outside of Canada.
