Visit to Podtech's new offices - they create content with some pretty cool content creators on board

On Thursday Jeremiah was kind enough to invite me to come by and visit the new Podtech offices in Palo Alto so i could check out the new digs and we could catch up on a couple of things including some follow up items from the recent Social Media roundtable event. They have a great office space right next to the Wall Street Journal printing plant in Palo Alto that sometimes i work out of. Old content meet new content- right next door.

So far i love most of the stuff that Podtech has out there. I admit that i started paying attention like most others did in the summer when Robert Scoble went over there from Microsoft and i faithfully watch the ScobleShow, listen to Jennifer Jones's Marketing Voices, their news channel and had some chuckles this weekend over some of the Lunch Meet interviews.

I definitely think that the content they are producing is valuable for enterprise users who need to keep up with the topics they cover. Since i work for an enterprise content aggregator, just like the services i deliver to the enterprise have television and radio transcripts, i could see podtech transcripts (with links to audio/video), that are indexed with meta data being in our archive just like any other content provider.

While there- i got to see some of the very nice folks who work there including Robert Scoble- he was busy so we really didn't get to talk- although i did ask him a question i have been wanting to ask- how come Maryam does all the chick interviews?- i think he thought i was giving him crap about the fact there there are almost no female bloggers on his link blog- but i wasn't- i was just wondering if he would just giggle too much through an interview- although i am sure it is still hard to find a C-level female executive at high tech companies, let's see who he decides to tackle first.

I look forward to seeing what else Podtech has up their sleeve in the upcoming months.
