The Death of PodTech and the Importance of Good Design


We are not in the business of passing judgment on people, but there is nothing to stop us from enjoying it from afar. Such is the case with this short post over on Airbag, which we were pointed to by way of Andy Rutledge. It’s about the failing of PodTech, an internet startup who was given oodles of venture capital money, but spent hardly anything on design or branding, which their celebrity employee, one Mr. Robert Scobble, said wasn’t a very important thing to care about at all. So the Airbag piece is something of a “oh really?!” sort of response to this lack of design understanding, which we enjoyed mightily and hope you will too.
