Podcast split

Winer and Curry fall out.

Blog god Dave Winer, the founder of Podcasting, has fallen out with former MTV-DJ Adam Curry, according to posts at Scripting News.

It appears that Winer has taken deep offence to an interview Curry gave to Wired in which he took much of the credit for the creation of Podcasting.

Although Winer and Curry are often jointly credited with popularising Podcasting, Winer is credited as being the creator of the technology that bought about the medium.

Winer and Curry were previously close, including partaking in joint podcasts. Winer now describes Curry as a “dickhead” and a fading star.

This split had been coming for a while … They are both featured speakers at the upcoming Gnomedex, which will focus on podcasting.
