    Cool. Nice job, Scoble. I'd just remark that Channel 9 is not a vlog or a video blog and it's certainly not Scobleizers's Video Blog Smiley

    Sure, we have RSS'd video threads, but we also have RSS'd non-video threads and a Wiki too.

    People just don't know how to categorize Channel 9 now do they...

    So true. But I must say, it is one of the most interesting, inspiring communities I have ever had the honour of being a member of.

    And Robert: Very well done. You should do stuff like this more often to raise public awarness for blogging even more!

    C9 is a "community site", it has a forum, wiki and videos.

    (Notice how "blog" doesn't come anywhere near C9!)

    Way to go scoble.  Good stuff.


    Sometimes you wonder if an interviewer has any real interest in what they're asking.

    Heh, yeah, when the camera goes to Scoble and you can still partially see her face, she looks totally uninterested.

    Otherwise, I enjoyed this interview Smiley.  Scoble is, as always, right on about the power of the blogger.


    And hmm, it's great to see my site being mentioned on C9 without a huge complaint attached Big Smile.

    I agree - I learned alot from watching this.

    I wish robert would write a quick post called "Everything you need to no about blogging but were afraid to ask"

    I "get" the blog part and the rss part.  What i dont get is how do you connect up to the blogoshere? If you are running a blog from a home server (not a big blog site that already has people) how do you promote it?

    Im sure there are pages and pages of articles on this - but id love a "Blog primer" by RS

    Something like: 10 steps to a popular blog:

    1. get any blog that supports rss and atom
    2. check to see the feeds work
    3. submit your blog here and here
    4. get this reader add on for outlook
    5. use these sites to monitor key words
    etc

    id find that useful

    I could write a lot about how to get your blog discovered. Make sure your blog tool pings weblogs.com though.

    More ideas at:

    Although some of the suggestions on Blogger.com are specific to that site/tool, there are some pretty good general ideas there too.

    Beer: I wear black because my wife makes me. Smiley

    Other reasons? I'm always color coordinated that way too! Heh.

    Real reason? Steve Jobs wears black and we all KNOW he's cool! Smiley

    Is that why you have the black business cards, too? Although I didn't get one when you visited Minneapolis back on the 5th...I think you ran out of them (or something like that).
