  1. Robert is great, no doubt about it, and I am pleased to say that while he was here at Microsoft he linked to more than one of my posts, as has Mary Jo Foley and others.

    I don’t want to be Robert Scoble. I try and distill from the vast volume of announcements, developments and happenings in the technology world items that are of interest to the community I serve.

    That community is centered in the NY/NJ/PA area and much of what I post is of local interest; code camps, user group meetings, tech days etc…

    Given that I am a single father of a 5 year old, with a job that’s more than 40 hours a week and lots of travel, I do what I can.

    I never expect to please all the people all the time. 🙂

    You win 2007’s Parrot-of-the-Year Award.  

    Republishing other Softie blog entries – how do you find the time?

    No offense, buy you should take a page from Robert Scoble.  Who, arguably, is the world’s coolest blogger: http://scobleizer.com/2007/08/.

    Oh, and for the record, he used to work at MS before he blew that popsicle stand.
