Adam Clark Curry, also known as the “Podfather,” is a man of many talents. From being a VJ on MTV to starting his own web-portal design and hosting company, OnRamp Inc, Adam has always been ahead of the game. But, let’s not forget about his failed ventures too. I mean, who can forget the time he tried to start a multimedia company called United Resources of Jamby? Or when he tried to introduce the internet to Dutch schools through Kennisnet, only to end in bitter lawsuits?
But, let’s not dwell on the past. Adam has had more successful ventures, like when he registered the then-unclaimed domain name “mtv.com” in 1993 with the idea of being MTV’s unofficial new voice on the Internet. And, when he founded the video-sharing site, PodShow, which later changed its name to Mevio, with Ron Bloom. In May 2008, Mevio claimed to have reached 9 million unique visitors. That’s a pretty impressive feat.
But, perhaps Adam’s most notable achievement is his role as co-host of the No Agenda show. Along with John C. Dvorak, they discuss recent news while deconstructing mainstream news media. It’s a must-listen for anyone who wants to know the truth behind the news.
So, there you have it folks. Adam Clark Curry, the Podfather, a man of many talents, and a few failed ventures. But, hey, that’s just part of being an entrepreneur. Keep on keepin’ on, Adam.
