FriendFeed and Twitter ROI for Robert Scoble?

Social Media by Flickr user Thomas HawkMichael Arrington over at TechCrunch thinks Robert Scoble needs a FriendFeed intervention. Michael believes Scoble’s reputation as a "blogger" is suffering because he’s spending too much time on FriendFeed and Twitter and not enough time on his blog. On Twitter Robert has nearly 45,000 followers and has written over 16,000 messages. On Friendfeed Robert has nearly 23,000 subscribers.

Scoble responds to the attempted intervention on his blog and on FriendFeed.

What do I think? I applaud Scoble for risking his reputation as a blogger to put the wider social network and micro-blogging to the test. I think Scoble has increased his influence in 2008 by establishing himself (and his brand) on FriendFeed and Twitter. I don’t think it will take much effort on his part to get his Web 1.0 blog numbers back up again – if that’s what he wants to do. I think Arrington is probably jealous that Scoble (essentially a one man shop) has him beat on the FriendFeed and Twitter metrics. Arrington is probably looking at 2009 wondering how he can catch up ; )

Keep up the good work Robert! I think your investment in FriendFeed and Twitter will pay off.


Puppet Interviews – Dove Deeper

During the lunch break here at the Webvisions event I dove a little deeper into Loren Feldman’s “Puppet Interviews” series and discovered this gem. – The Mike Arrington Show (embeded below). Man, my stomach was in knots by the time I finished watching this.

and now compare it with the real deal



Valleywag – Arrington = Mickey Mouse

I got a kick out of reading this Valleywag post that pokes fun at Michael Arrington for being down on the valley. Poor guy.

MICHAEL ARRINGTON: The genie is out of the bottle – Valleywag

Arrington is like Mickey Mouse, in Fantasia: as did the cartoon character in the Disney movie, the Techcrunch founder has cast a spell that’s gone wrong; and it’s too late to put the magic back in the bottle.
