Pew Report on popularity of podcasting

The Pew Report , "Podcasting catches on" (3rd April 2005) provides some interesting statistics on the growing phenomenon of podcasting in the US. See Podcasting Directory for examples.

The Pew Report states that ...
... 22 million American adults own iPods or MP3 players
... 29% have downloaded podcasts from the Web
... more males than females own such devices

Odvard Egil Dyrli in an article, "Do-it-yourself radio is spreading across the Internet like wildfire," provides a perspective and some URLS on schools and podcasting.

Check the latest chart of internet activities on the Pew Report site. It ranges from a high 90% for using e-mail, 73% getting news, 62% making travel reservations, 36% paying bills online, 10% creating blogs and &% making a phone call online.

The incredible growth in the blogosphere in such a relatively short time should make interesting reading when updated statistics are next published.
