Perhaps Odeo’s next custodians will be able to give it a sense of direction and build a community around it. For now though, it seems to have been left adrift with a hodge podge of features that all seem neat, but don’t form a cohesive product..
I know they put a lot of effort into Odeo, at least initially. Now Twitter, a much simpler site is taking off. I guess it goes to show that a great idea will do better than a lot of hard work.
