Scoble, the uber blogger, is leaving Microsoft for Silicon Valley start-up podtech.com. News of Scoble’s decision to leave Microsoft rocked the blogosphere over the weekend and it will continue to monopolize the conversation through the week. In fact, the jolt and the resulting traffic was significant enough to knock podtech.com off-line for a while. IMO, Microsoft should have done a lot more (there’s a price) to keep him around. Seriously, Scoble is Microsoft in the blogosphere and I can’t see how they’re going to fill the void – Channel9 was just a small part of what he did for them. Big mistake Microsoft – you can’t afford to loose guys like Robert. Best wishes Robert!
