To gadfly: What you are saying sounds like a common argument against e-health circa 1995. Mass adoption will take a little time. Technology takes time to mature. Have a little patience.

A lot of people are making podcasts and talking about podcasts. But how many people are actually listening to podcasts. Think of the situation with the blog explosion: there are tons of blogs on every subject. The best a reader can do to manage their time is set up a portal page and browse. You can’t scan podcasts. You make a commitment to listen. I can’t see how this can be anything more than a fad in today’s over-committed, information-overloaded society.
