Just in case you’ve not already heard the news rippling through the blogosphere, famed blogger, Robert Scoble, has announced he is leaving Microsoft, to become VP of Content for PodTech.net, a company providing video interviews of technology leaders.
Congratulations to Robert, especially as reports suggest he’ll be making a lot more money and getting a good stock plan.
Two interesting questions, that I am sure will be asked over the coming days.
1. Scoble was a huge asset to Microsoft and gave the company a more personal voice. How will Scoble’s departure impact the company?
2. Working for Microsoft, no doubt gave Scoble a huge platform from which to have his voice heard. Now that he has left the company for a start-up, will he carry the same clout?
