Mevio finally goes dark

It was on January 2012 that the warning bell started sounding that all was not well at Mevio. Yesterday I got a final email telling me that Mevio.com was finally shutting down on the 16th April. Hardly a surprise. What took them so long?

In a week when the BBC was reminiscing about the first 10 years of podcasting, including interviews with Adam Curry, it seems rather ironic this is the week his creation is about to close.

Mevio divided the idealists and rewarded a few. It had high hopes and desperate lows.  It was inspiring and then it was disappointing. At least it tried to be different, and I enjoyed being part of the team for a while.

Here’s to 2014, my 8th year of podcasting!

Download Stats 2009-2013Being a scientist by training, I love numbers, and how data can become information. I’ve been collecting download stats of all the podcasts I do since I started in January 2006. I’ve been displaying these here on my website since 2009.

It’s sad to say that my podcasts are not quite as popular as they used to be. After I won the European Podcast of the Year Award at the end of 2010, there was a massive increase in downloads during 2011 with a total of 1.8 millions downloads. This has now dropped back to 1.3 million in 2012 and to 747,000 in 2013.

I’m not sure of all the reasons why this has happened. Perhaps there is more choice nowadays, perhaps my musical tastes are not reflecting the “latest genre” as they were in 2009 when the Dub Step Zone started and Dubstep was still somewhat underground. Perhaps the ubiquitous “dubstep drop” featuring in more pop-oriented tracks has diluted the dubstep genre.

Either way, I always reflect at this time of year on WHY I do podcasting. Essentially the reason is still the same. It’s my hobby and I love doing it. I like to help share excellent new music and I have the audacity to think I’m a taste maker, rather than a taste follower. I have a small number of dedicated listeners and a number of musicians and netlabelists that I now call friends, either physically or virtually, and that’s been good for me.

So here’s to 2014. My 8th year in podcasting and one that is bound to be full of weird and wonderful new music. Bring it on!
