ReadWriteWeb Gets A Clue About Podcasting

Jan 10th, 2008 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, iPod Accessories, iPods & Portable Media Players, Video Podcasts

Back in August, we took ReadWriteWeb to task for publishing a gloom and doom take on the state of podcasting.

RRW’s article suggested that podcasting was stagnating, that podcasting was losing steam and that it was even going out of fashion.

At the time, we said that ReadWriteWeb was clueless about podcasting. We called their argument “not just bad, but spectacularly bad.” We went on to say that the article’s author not only failed “to understand what a podcast is, but he apparently doesn‚Äôt understand basic technology adoption patterns.”

Yeah – we were a bit harsh – but it had to be said.

Fortunately, a lot has changed since August at RRW:

  • They’ve started their own podcast, ReadWriteTalk.
  • They’ve hired some great new writers, including the optimally wired Marshall Kirkpatrick.
  • They’ve developed into the thinking geek’s TechCrunch.

Best of all, they’ve gotten a clue about podcasting.

Today they admitted that podcasting is “far from dead.” Let’s hope that this is a sign of more insightful coverage to come.
