    I'll continue to do interviews just as I always have... And, ban I will. 


    Charles,

    I'm sorry you've come back to this mess.  Don't be discouraged.  I've resolved to try to direct the more dogmatic religious conversations to my blog--especially in cases where the conversation is only between two or three people.

    I'm sure things are a bit shaken up with the departure of Scoble.  Again, I wanted to say thanks for your work and patience around here.

    I'm not leaving Channel 9.

    Why leave right before Windows Vista comes out?

    Cause I see that it will open up rafts of new business opportunities.

    Robert,

    Am I taking that you are going to do this same sort of video interview thing with podtech?  What would be cool is if you figured something out so you could post those podtech interviews here too.  Kinda of give Channel 9 a cross-industry feel.

    I'm sorry to hear you are leaving, strangely more disappointed to see you go to a Web 2.0 startup.

    But if you are, there is one industry that will embrace podcasting like none other:  education.  Look into it.  I was talking to a few people high up in both US and UK colleges and Unis the other day and its really seen as the big thing.  Vlogging, though, as I have always said, is a bunch of useless crap where only pretty vloggers get any hits!

    Scoble will serve as vice president of content media and will host a weekly, if not more frequent, tech podcast show, and help PodTech.net move deeper to video programming, Furrier said. While at Microsoft, Scoble did numerous videos as part of the company's Channel 9 developer site. He will continue to maintain his personal blog, Scobleizer.

    I'll be trying a bunch of different things, not just video interviews.

    Robert,

    I will miss your laugh.

    I only wish you had stayed until the release of Windows Vista, Exrpression and Office 2007. 

    There were at least hundred more videos that you should have made for the Niners.

    Actually there are another 40 Scoble videos in the bag. So, there's more of me to come for a while.

    In English please...

    "Posting in old threads is bad. Okay?"

    I agree, btw. Don't resurrect old threads.

    Necro is a shortened form of Necromancy, the black art of raising the dead.

    Why should it matter what thread I post in?

    People who don't look at post dates (e.g. nearly everybody, including yours truly) will start replying to old posts from the thread as if they're still relevant, which more often than not they aren't. Sometimes they will reply to people who haven't been posting here for ages.

    It's confusing, it's annoying, it's pointless.

    Exceptions may be made only if the new poster has something really insightful/helpful to say. Which wasn't exactly the case with your comment, I'm afraid the say. Tongue Out

    I bumped this up to #1 for a reason.

    Why was Dylan banned today?

    No answer is needed, just un-do the action, please.

    Who's to blame for this? I'm unhappy about it.
