San Francisco, July 13, 2005
In an agreement that capitalizes on the huge potential of independent music podcasting, Odeo and the Association of Music Podcasting have joined forces. The organizations will work together to showcase the best in legal, independently produced music in an open, device-agnostic platform. As part of the agreement, Odeo and AMP will engage in cross-promotional activities, collaborate on ways to better serve their users, and increase the amount of rights-free music available for podcasting.
Odeo is based in San Francisco, California. Founded in December, 2004 by Noah Glass and Evan Williams, OdeoÕs goal is to provide people and organizations with powerful tools for the creation and distribution of media. Odeo (beta) is now open at http://odeo.com. Discovery and subscription tools are currently available. Additional services will be released soon.
About the Association of Music Podcasting
AMP was formed in January 2005 to unite podcasters who play legally available independent music. AMP DJs are music lovers who have access to great, mostly independent music that you probably haven’t heard of (yet). AMP provides a fresh alternative, and itÕs all legal and safe to download. Each AMP member has his or her own unique podcast.
