Malcolm Gladwell, one of my favorite writers, has started a blog. FYI, Malcolm’s presentation at Pop!Tech 2004 has been downloaded nearly (not quite, yet) 100,000 times on IT Conversations. That makes it the #3 most-listened to program after Bruce Schneier (#2, ~110,000 listens) and Steve Wozniak (#1, over 150,000). I hadn’t checked the stats for a long time. Malcolm used to be #1 and I wasn’t even watching Bruce or Steve.
BTW, the typical show, which isn’t picked up by bloggers, SlashDot, BoingBoing, etc., is downloaded by 10,000-20,000 listeners, depending on the topic and series.
