Thanks, Listeners! OTN ArchBeat Podcast is #1!

The OTN ArchBeat Podcast has been around since March of 2009, featuring conversations with members of the OTN architect community. Since that launch the podcast has produced 229 individual programs. While the podcast has generally fared well among the 25 Oracle podcasts, over the last year or so the audience has built to the point that in August 2013 the podcast hit a new and remarkable milestone. I'm very happy to announce that for the month of August the OTN ArchBeat Podcast was the most downloaded of all Oracle podcasts. Here are the top 10 Oracle podcasts for August, based on the aggregate number of downloads.

  1. OTN ArchBeat Podcast
  2. Oracle Database PodCasts
  3. Oracle's AppCasts
  4. Oracle Fusion Middleware Podcasts
  5. Oracle Magazine Podcast
  6. Oracle Technology Network TechCasts
  7. Oracle Author Podcasts
  8. Oracle Sun Servers and Storage Podcasts
  9. Meet The MySQL Experts

The OTN ArchBeat Podcast would not be possible without the cooperation, insight, and expertise of a small army of panelists who have participated in the conversations over the past four years. Panels for the various discussions almost always include members of the Oracle ACE program, along with subject matter experts from within Oracle, and the occasional outside expert. Compiling a complete list of all the panelists would take more time than I have, but their participation has driven the conversations, and those conversations have driven the success of the podcast. For that I am enormously grateful.

But of course all that effort and expertise would go to waste if no one was listening. So I am especially grateful for the people who download the programs. Thanks for listening. I hope you will continue to do so.
