Odeo Buys Fireant … More Acquisitions To Come?

As reported in TechCrunch, Odeo (formally Sonic Mountain) bought Fireant.

Podcast hosting and directory platform buys Podcatcher software.

I’m sure this is just the start of the acquisitions we’ll see leading up to Podcast Expo.

    I believe Evan Williams connected the new owners of Odeo to FireAnt as the two companies have a lot in common. This will be an interesting combination to watch as both have compelling technology and will more than likely provide an enjoyable online media experience.

    Looking forward to seeing what they release in the coming months. Nice to also see early Web 2.0 companies relaunch and continue to create fun and interesting software… best of luck!

    This begs the question what is going on here:


    I hope that things settle down so Odeo can regain it’s former standing. The site has been so dead ! Really thought it was going into the deadpool.

    Don’t hold your breath for anything exciting to come from the likes of kinberg at fireant. He flat out lied to me and my college friends who spent months working on our comedy video channel for fireant, saying that a new version of the player was coming, that it would connect directly to portable devices and that our channel would be put into the fireant directory. All lies.

    Don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner but I checked out kinberg’s personal blog and here’s a guy who doesn’t even bother to update his blog for months at a time and not a hint of video creation to be found. I wonder if ODEO did their homework before hiring this guy on!

    I’m pretty sick and tired of these blabber-mouth, self flattering tech CEOs who think they know what film makers want, when they themselves don’t produce nada. Granted my friends and I are just starting out in film making and comedy TV, but at least we try to produce something every day.

    I agree with Marco. Brian B. is a troll who “PUMPS” up this travesty and scam across the comment sections of various Blogs. Such a shame!
