The ugly D-Man

Oh boy, John Dvorak is bashing some new technology saying it has no future? This has been going on since at least 1984 when he said The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a ‘mouse.´ There is no evidence that people want to use these things.’ This is also the guy who has claimed as recently as last month that focusing on the iPod will ruin’ Apple.Of course, podcasts are a new hype and still have to prove whether or not they will be able to stay hype.
To bash on Doug this way, the person who has such great audio online (you don't even need to call it podcast because it was there before the name ...) is just low. And I think the ugly D-man might have done something for podcasting (or audio on the web in general) he never intended to: Get people interessted. As I wrote in the comments:
Problem is: We know better (especially about what Doug is giving to us) but from a normal point of view his column reads okay till thrustworthy.
