I got a chance to interview Robert Scoble on the topic of “Communities, Social Media, Twitter and More.” I think his insights into how to get started with blogging are spot on. Just observing his blog and his Flickr and Twitter pages offers lessons in social media incarnation.
Scoble is setting a high watermark for all of us. So B2B marketers out there, let’s listen, learn and get busy!
About the Scobleizer
Robert Scoble is a technical evangelist, writer, and author of the popular blog Scobleizer. He is currently Vice President of Media Development at the Palo Alto-based video-podcast startup company PodTech.net, where among other things he produces the ScobleShow, a series of interviews and stories about, as the site puts it, “geeks, technologists and developers.” Scoble is a lifelong technologist. He grew up just blocks from Apple Computer and played in the garage with electronic gadgets his father brought home from work. Scoble worked for Fawcette Technical Publications, UserLand Software, NEC and TabletPC before landing a job in 2003 with the Channel 9 MSDN Video team producing stories about Microsoft employees and products. During this period, his Scobleizer blog became a favorite of technologists who valued his independence and objectivity. He is a popular speaker and coauthor of Naked Conversations: How Blogs Are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers.
