The news is out. Graf über-blogger Robert Scoble von Microsoft is leaving the heimat.
It's all over the blogosphere this morning (way too tired last night with jet lag and all to talk about it). I bumped into Robert yesterday at noon at vloggercon. He looked as happy and relaxed as he always does. I just asked him why he had traded his small DV camera (only a few hundred bucks), for his now huge (HD ?) camera. He just laughed back as he always does. Check this video:
I'll probably see him again later today, and I'll ask him on video how he feels. My take is that Robert had a life before Microsoft, and now he's moving over at Podtech. Making the transition from one to the other should come easy to him, but many people will associate him with Seattle for a while. Life's about change, decisions are about making your environment better, so here goes: "well done buddy!". Robert made a decision, we should all support him in his new challenge!
