Odeo For Sale
I ran across this post today in doing some research. The folks who run Odeo are looking for a buyer for the service. The post states:
In the last few months, we here at Obvious have been increasingly focused on Twitter. As a result, our original product, Odeo, has not gotten the attention it deserves.
That would explain the weirdness that Meredith noted in trying to use Odeo for the Five Weeks To A Social Library course. The idea behind Odeo, and especially its Flash players, are really cool so hopefully someone will step up, keep the service going, and make it better.
I've got 20 bucks in my pocket, anybody else in?
