Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Correcting the Record about Microsoft  —  I'm seeing some things on the blogs that just chap my hide.  —  First, I love Microsoft and Microsoft did not lose me — at least as a supporter and friend.  I am not throwing away my Tablet PC or my Xbox or my other Microsoft stuff. :-)

Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
The joy on her face  —  I met Cali Lewis yesterday.  Don't know her?  I didn't either, but her story tells you a lot about why I am jumping into Podcasting and Videoblogging and Second Life with both feet.  —  She started her videoblog in December (she does the Geekbrief videoblog).
Hugh / gapingvoid:
SCOBLE'S LEAVING MICROSOFT  —  [The rumors are true.]  Robert Scoble is leaving Microsoft.  —  I talked to Robert on the phone the other day.  He told me about his leaving, moving over to Podtech.net instead etc.  He asked me not to tell anyone, which I didn't, until now.
Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
The geeks on Saturday night  —  Tris Hussey, in the comments on Toby Bloomberg's blog, asks "what the heck where all these bloggers doing up at 11 p.m. on a Saturday?"  —  Tell me about it!  I was out to dinner with a bunch of video bloggers.  It was interesting to watch how the news started spreading.
Don Dodge / Don Dodge on The Next Big Thing:
Robert Scoble - A legend in his own time  —  Robert Scoble is leaving Microsoft to tackle a new challenge.  Silicon Valley Watcher, Tom Foremski, broke the story.  Robert did more in his three years at Microsoft to improve the corporate image than any one I know.
Discussion: John Palfrey
Dan Farber / Between the Lines:
Scoble shocks blogosphere, trumps World Cup  —  The major weekend news, at least according to Technorati's blog search, was A-list blogger Robert Scoble leaving Microsoft to join PodcastTech.net.  News of Scoble's change of venue outranked the World Cup on Technorati as the top ranked search term on Sunday …

Read/WriteWeb:
Page Views 2.0  —  It's funny that I posted the PlentyOfFish.com post not long before the Scoble-leaving-Microsoft announcement predictably blanketed Techmeme.  Because reading Robert's latest post about his decision made me think about the fundamental reason why 'Web 2.0' is (dare I say it) in bubble phase right now.
Discussion: Mathew Ingram
Dave Winer / Scripting News:
Scoble moves  —  Chris Pirillo says it's "100 percent true" that Scoble is leaving Microsoft and joining Podtech.  —  I've been hanging with Scoble all day, had dinner with him and John Furrier last night (also Jason Calacanis, Leo Laporte, Steve Gillmor, Janice Fraser, Maryam Scoble and Amber Dawn MacArthur).
Silicon Valley Watcher:

Woodrow / The Ponderings of Woodrow:   Scoble leaving Microsoft...
Ross Miller / Joystiq:
Nintendo-Apple merger?  Don't hold your breath.  —  Repeat after me: Apple will not buy Nintendo; Nintendo will never be bought.  If I'm wrong, I will let the entire Joystiq staff and our top 5 contributors punch me in the gut.  There is an article from CNET that came out yesterday …

Ryan Block / Engadget:
Nintendo's DS Lite launch party in New York  —  Wouldn't you know it, last night instead of going out and getting our social life on, Paul and I cruised over to Rockefeller Center to the Nintendo World Store for the official DS Lite launch event (it being the eve of June 11th and all).
Rob Hof / TechBeat:
Digg This: Soon, Not Just for Geeks Anymore  —  Digg, the collaborative tech news site, will soon branch out beyond geekdom.  At a Web 2.0 panel at the eBay Developers Conference today, President Kevin Rose said that in the next month or so, the popular site—where people vote on stories submitted by others …
Fred / A VC:
Technorati Confusion  —  Over the years (my blogging years) I've had an up and down relationship with Technorati.  —  In recent times, it's mostly been up.  Now that I've given up on Trackbacks, the Technorati link in the flare at the bottom of each post is my replacement for them.
Richard Siklos / New York Times:
Coming Soon (Maybe): Even More TV Channels  —  LET'S take a poll, couch potatoes.  Raise your hand if you are excited about the possibilities of television multicasting.  —  We jest, of course.  Chances are that only people who work as lobbyists or media executives have a vague notion …
Discussion: IP Democracy
Simon Burns / Inquirer:
Origami UMPCs are a disaster  —  Microsoft's mission impossible  —  MICROSOFT'S Origami Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) is looking like the company's biggest flop since Windows ME.  Fortunately for Microsoft, it's not paying for this mistake, you are, if you buy one now.
