Robert....what was it again?

Now that Scoble has cashed in and left Microsoft for a start-up, can we please forget about him?

I bloody well hope so. Never has a four-eyed chubby geek had so much attention for so long....for crying out loud, he almost made nerds think they were cool there for a while.

The only reason that he ever made it into my reader (and he's gone already) was because he resided at Microsoft, and therefore might give some insight into the workings of the world's leading....umm, massive company.

Not that he ever did, really. He just went..."wow, I've just been over with my Channel 9 buddies filming Brad in Development who's doing some really far out stuff with grids that's simply going to blow you all away" and "what really gets me is when those guys at Google say we're not great and we are great. They're great too and if we all just got along it'd be a world of greatness."

And you knew he really wasn't cool because he called himself the Scobleizer! Christ...it's like that arse Chuck Sherman in American Pie..."I am the Sherminator. I'm a sophisticated sex robot sent back through time, to change the future for one lucky lady."

Well done Robert - best of luck. Now bugger off.

Amen to that - dreary fellow. Dreary blog. Fawning worship of geeks slightly nauseating at times. Euch.

Quiet week is it? Hardly "the world's leading" bit of gossip.

Are you American? It's just that I sense you don't 'get' the irony in the blog's name...check the previous post at http://theworldsleading.blogspot.com/2006/05/10-reasons-that-americans-are.html

But yes, it is a bit quiet. Got anything for us?

More like "the world's only" with the demise of Spin Bunny and The World of Hi-tech Pr and Mr Jon 'Clogger' Silk going all corporate and deadly DULL! We need a good gossip site - not just another blog that pops off at stuff we can read everywhere else on the web.

OK, well fire away with some of your good gossip...we're all ears. Send it in and we'll stick it up. Or start something yourself.

Scoble is a boring, arrogant person - hopefully this is the last we will see of this individual and his tedious and largely pointless blog. Microsoft certainly won't miss him and neither will society.
