PodTech’s own Robert Scoble is featured today in the San Jose Mercury News also known as the Merc here in Silicon Valley. What’s compelling about the story is the openness of the net and how opportunities are created via transparency. Nice article by Michelle Quinn
The Merc writes: “Over the past three years, Scoble has gained fame as the “Microsoft blogger,” a Microsoft employee writing online about Microsoft and its products. His persona is non-defensive and engaging, an online bedside manner he says he learned dealing with angry customers when he worked at a camera store in San Jose.”….
Michelle asks what he learned from Microsoft. Robert says “We were tired of committee-based marketing. Here we were having real conversations with people. On the first day we started Channel 9, the public relations people tried to shut it down. But they couldn’t because 100,000 people showed up. That was three years ago. Now it has 4.3 million unique visitors a month as of two months ago.’
