Prediction: Scoble Launches Vlogging Craze

Scoble is going to launch vlogging (and podtech.com) into orbit. I spent some time with my surfboard tonight – surfing the vlog waves – there’s a lot of crap out there but there’s also some really good stuff flying around. Pioneers like Amanda Congdon (Rocketboom) are doing pretty good for themselves already – we’re talking about 85K a week in advertising revenue and 300,000 visitors a day. I’m looking forward to watching this space as it develops.

 


Scoble – IMO

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!
