I caught up with Evan Williams at the Churchill Club's 20th anniversary event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. Evan was one of the founders of Blogger, which was sold to Google, and is now involved in the podcasting startup, Odeo. We discussed his views on podcasting (democratization of media), plans for his new company and his take on how Google has been treating Blogger.
Evan also participated on a Churchill Club panel entitled "Next Generation Leaders." Sun co-founder and now venture capitalist at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers moderated the panel, which also included Mark Jacobstein, President, Digital Chocolate; Scott Heiferman, CEO, Meetup.com; and Blake Ross, co-creator of Firefox. A podcast of the lively panel discussion is available. In addition, I interviewed Blake Ross about Firefox and his new venture.
