Web 2.0 Workgroup Network December 13, 2005

Posted by John in Technology.

Web 2.0 Workgroup is ranked.  I think that PodTech was the fourth one in the web 2.0 workgroup – Dave Winer beat me by a day :-) 

What’s great is that it is recognized as a powerful group of bloggers (and Podcasters) who through no contracts formed a strong but loosely coupled network.  In this social web there are no contracts as strong as social contracts. The contracts are both self and group governing.  What’s great is no one owns this.  It’s a community network. 

It’s interesting to see how they valued PodTech.  We are technically a blog (and will do more blogging starting next month) but mostly a podcasting platform, but what’s interesting is that we get millions of downloads of our podcasts a month but have a low linkage number.  This is because of the difference between real time and asynchronous consumption – podcasts are mostly consumed when people are not online (does that matter?).  That being said I see a collision between real-time and asynchronous consumption behavior.  More on this later.

If anyone is interested in working on developing a model to track podcast listening and linkage analytics please drop me a line because I’m actively working on this. 

The open question is what is more valuable a ‘blog page read’ or a ‘podcast listen’????  Any comments or thoughts on this?

[…] I am constantly trying to figure out why PodTech has so much traffic.  I blogged about how we don’t have the linkage.  However PodTech is doing millions and millions of downloads a month.  I won’t talk about the number until I validate it with some data mining engineers, but it’s amazing.  […]
