Andrew Baron says that Scoble is leaving Podtech. Huh? No one else is saying this, so I wonder where he got that information. I generally agree with the basic points in his points about podcast/videoblog networks needing to focus on content first. As much as I like John Furrier personally, I also can’t name a second Podtech show off the top of my head. Every time I hear of a company like PodTech or Podshow or Odeo getting multi-million dollar investments and going through it, all I can wonder is how they are spending all that money. Isn’t the thing that makes this medium interesting and available to all of us its low cost of production?
Update: Apparently Andrew was basing that off of this thing from Chuck Olsen. If I had realized that this originated in a Twitter message, I might have held off on my post. Not that I think Chuck is lying or anything but it just seems so ephemeral. Of course, wasn’t Chuck also the one who broke the news of Amanda Congdon leaving Rocketboom? He’s the Forrest Gump of bad new media news.
Update 2: In comments Scoble says this is bogus. Chuck and Drew, what are you doing?
