Editor's warning... a bit dated, but still intersting.
According to a Brazilian going by Tvindy on Podcast Pickle, these are, or I should say were, the top 10 podcasts as measured by how many twitter followers they have... not sure that's a very good measure, and of course this is as of March 18, 2008 LOL... always gotta check the dates on all things internet.... but FWIW:
1. Leo Laporte 9400 (following 254) Tech Talk
2. Adam Curry 2895 (following 165) MTV Guy, pop culture dude.
3. Kent Nichols 2141 (following 713) Tech Guy... co-creator of AskANinja.com
4. Mignon Fogarty 1586 (following 418) Writing tips... You Go!
5. Scott Sigler 1106 (following 825) Horror writer (another writer)
6. Drew Domkus 1067 (following 161) Husband and Wife make it big podcasters!
7. J. C. Hutchins 1064 (following 1040) Thriller Novelist (3rd writer)
8. Mighty Mur 932 (following 614) Mur Lafferty, Writer taking geekdom to a new level (4th writer)
9. Evo Terra 855 (following 153) co-author of Podcasting for Dummies, Techie/writer
10. Rob Walsh 845 (following 749)
The categories for these folks, "writer," "techie," etc. is mostly a reflection of their past or noteworthy accomplishments. Now, they all seem to be exploring the various social networking media out there... in addition to their original shticks.
I could have seen Evo Terra and Mur Lafferty at Balticon, "The Maryland Regional Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention," which has turned into something of a media tech fair, given the interest in topics, like this workshop by Evo Terra:
Podiobooks: A Novel Way To Listen - Sun 5/24/09 @ 5pm
Exposing new listeners to the serialized audiobook format. You’d be surprised how many don’t know about it.
So, I write a book. Can't fit it into one podcat, or maybe I can, but if not, I spread it out over several podcasts.... kinda like my on-going series on Einstein's Relativity, which started with Episode 12 of GDAE Podcast.
