Stating the Obvious

Here's an amusing little tidbit from Mediapost this morning about video podcast downloaders:
Video podcast users were 764 percent more likely than the average user to visit StarTrek.com, a CBS Paramount site based on the 40-year-old "Star Trek" TV franchise.
Shocking.

In other news, research has also determined that people who eat a lot of food are fatter than average.

I'm never forwarding you articles again. But then again, I'm not a blogger: http://evidiot.blogspot.com/2006/07/yeah-im-blogger-so-what.html

You forgot to mention the part of the article that says that the number of people who download podcasts now exceeds the number of people who have blogs. Take that, Nick Denton and your "the world does not need more blogs" comment! Everybody, blog away, there must be more blogs!

I know, but what a completely irrelevant statistic. That's like saying that more people walk to work than read the newspaper during their commute. It's a total apples-to-oranges comparison.

Chris, when are we starting the "young people who work in advertising," blog ring?

(Apologies, it may be the Thursday night happy hours drinks purchased by my COO talking. But I think my point still stands.)
