On the creation side users can record through the web using ODEO studio (using Flash again) upload mp3 files directly, use a phone to call in and record, and import an external feed. User can also add notes, sound “elements” then publish. Possible future features may include Flash based voice conferencing.

Evan spoke to the business model. The main opportunities hosting (some free some more robust), publishing (some free some more pro) and enable users to charge for content (Audible sold $19mm worth of downloads last quarter). and lastly advertising (matching shows with advertisers).

Limited invite only beta coming soon.

My impression of this- Evan has a great service, I’m really looking forward to using ODEO with our new Make:Audio show in all sorts of interesting ways.
