Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

More and more the internet multimedia bandwagon online grows. I have been reading about Blinkx in the sphere for a while, and just got around to using it today.

Playing with Odeo

Sunday, June 26th, 2005

I am just now getting around to playing around with the soon to be launched Odeo. I received my “preview access” and have just had a chance to dig in. So far Odeo looks pretty slick, the interface is clean and simple to use, with the main navigation being broken out into the three fundamental […]

The Media Company Debate….

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

Philipp Lenssen has taken some screen shots of the soon to be live Odeo podcasting platform (if I can call it that). Philipp reviews:
