h3. About Today’s Show
Beach Walks continues its road tour in San Francisco at the Vloggercon conference. Today I have a chat with Robert Scoble, author of Naked Conversations. If you’re a techie, he needs no introduction. For the rest of you, he is a very well-known blogger and tech evangelist within Microsoft. He’s taken up vlogging, and loves how it creates an opportunity to shine a light on issues and people that otherwise might fall by the wayside.
I asked him about one of my beach metaphors, that place where the known world and the unknown world meet. He has a long history of being at the front of major changes, starting with interactions with Steve Wozniak, a co-founder of Apple Computer. This interview with Scoble demonstrates how easy it is to get know someone via video blogging. A written blog is so easily misinterpreted, as words pack so many and varied innuendos. But wow, a live, on camera, unedited discussion–now that’s real!
Update: In case you couldn’t tell by the title or the hint in the show followed by my, “Do you want us to cut that out?” this was recorded the day before Robert’s official announcement to leave Microsoft. Respect for privacy comes before journalism here at Beach Walks.
