Scoble : from blogger to talking head

Scoble on Newsnight

Just finished watching Newsnight on TV, which had a piece on the “retirement” from full time employment at Microsoft of Bill Gates in 2008. I wonder it this announcement will have more success in delivering to date than Vista ?

Anyhow what was interesting was the BBC’s choice of Microsoft spokesperson, rather than the standard PR person or available VP they selected soon to be ex-Microsoft blogger Robert Scoble.

A case of unintended consequences perhaps or that bloggers are recognised by producers as “spin-free” ?

Anyway thought he did a pretty good job for a “not a PR person.”
