Odeo. Listen to lots and lots of podcasts. Like Alan Richman's culinary assualt on New Orleans.

Odeo is one of those things that at first glance seems PROFOUNDLY useful, even revolutionary... except that I can't think of a good practical application for it.

I feel it may be 3 years too late.

I hope I'm wrong, I really want Odeo to be successful because I like their approach.

I love the audio comments that just say "this is cool". That's like Web 3.0.

Wow, even my podcast is on Odeo!

Flickr. Look at lots and lots of photographs.

More to the point, Odeo was linked just a couple months ago. Or was Alan Richman the subject of your post?

Alan Richman makes a number of serious factual errors, which were of the easily-checkable variety, according to the Times Picayune.

He was displeased, for instance, with his trout amandine meunière at Galatoire's because "it looked and tasted fried." Although the traditional French preparation of meunière calls for the fish to be sautéed, it is still a little like dissing tuna sashimi for being raw, as Galatoire's has been serving trout amandine meunière fried for better than a century.

He also:
... wonders if Creoles are a myth, "faery folk, like leprechauns," on the basis of having "never met one." ...
Leah Chase, the most famous Creole chef on the planet, whom Richman quotes extensively, apparently doesn't count.

Um, folks? Odeo seems to have recently kicked the bucket.

Twitter is the new odeo, and Alan Richman is an ass.

Was this post lost in a time warp for a while...?

WTF is Alan Richman?

Um, folks? Odeo seems to have recently kicked the bucket.

When did they change the meaning of 'kicked the bucket' to 'bought back by founders from investors'?

jack_mo: I was basing that off TechCrunch's opening line: "Odeo as we know it is gone." I believe everything TechCrunch tells me, and that tells me they've kicked the bucket.

They might reinvent themselves, but the Odeo referenced in this post is apparently dead. So this makes kind of an odd FPP.

That's what you get for not reading past the first line. The rest of the piece makes it quite clear that Odeo will continue to exist.

Alan Richman is no Alan Rickman, that's for sure.

jjg: I did read the whole piece, and I've just read it again. I still see it as "the Odeo referenced in this FPP is going away," but I suppose everyone interprets things differently.

And sort-of on the subject, I'm using Twitter and loving it, so hopefully it will do well.
