    I'm also curious to see how this turns out... It's a high risk! But Robert can make it.

    I'll be totally honest ... !

    I'm not interested in blog journalism & marketing, I'm more interested in the goings on in technology's and people's opinions on that.

    Robert was always a really good insight into the going's on inside Microsoft and produced some good edgy copy whilst at Microsoft.

    Since leaving I've found myself reading Roberts blog less and less but in the mean-while I've looking around for a replacement ... which I have kind of found in a round-a-bout way.

    Yep, ok so there is actually 1000's of mini Scobles, called MSDN blogs ... cut cream rises to the top, so for me top blogger at Microsoft is Eileen Brown, I think she is fantastic!

    I don't. Not for absolute ages, I unsubscribed when he was still at MS, because after the book came out it seemed the blog was more for promoting himself than anything useful.

    If I want opinionated stuff I listen to radio 4's politics programmes.

    Opinion has it's place, but views have to be separate from news.

    ... this is the key mistake that Mary Jo, Scoble infact many of the tech commentators make some of the time ... not all!

    Never read it in the first place.

    Does that make me a bad person?

    Me neither, a lot of his stuff (seemed like) crossposting/content-forwarding, like Paul Thurrot's "Internet Nexus", just an opinionated version of News.com's fodder.
