Evan Williams has started a new venture related to podcasting. I’m generally a laggard when it comes to jumping on with new trends, so it shouldn’t surprise you that podcasting leaves me cold. Here’s why: if I’m can’t skim it, I’m not interested. I don’t like to watch the news on television, or listen to it on the radio, and I’ve never listened to an audiobook in my entire life. For me, the ability to proceed at my own pace is the key to the experience. I must also confess that I have not actually downloaded any podcasts. Maybe actually trying them would change my mind, but I doubt it.
