    Just for the record, Scoble is not the dude "who started the whole Channel 9 thing". There were 5 of us and a few more virtual members (Vic Gundutra, Sanjay Parthasarathy) of the team that made it happen. Lenn Pryor and Jeff Sandquist can be credited with coming up with the concept for Channel 9 initially, with Lenn being the one who conceived of the original idea, high on cold medicine. That said, Scoble IS the driving force for our success in the sense that he is THE video guy and does an outstanding job generating great video content on Channel 9. So, better to advertise Scoble as the guy who pushed corporate video blogging to a whole new level. Channel 9 is the place that enabled this to happen.
