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).

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.
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 PodTech.net.  News of Scoble's change of venue outranked the World Cup on Technorati as the top ranked search term on Sunday …

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.

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.

PlayStation 2 outselling Xbox 360 in US  —  Like a good soccer match, the monthly sales battles between the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 2 have a lot of exciting back-and-forth.  So far, however, the PlayStation 2 has remained in control of the match, outselling the Xbox 360 in six of the seven months since the Xbox 360's debut.

Video start-up One True Media lands $5 million from Kleiner Perkins  —  One True Media is a new Silicon Valley start-up (Redwood City) that is offering video creation tools, and wants to be the next video-sharing company.  There are dozens of competitors, so this is a long shot.

Kathy Sierra / Creating Passionate Users:
Mosh Pit as Innovation Model  —  "Professionals" in any field come in two flavors: Knowledge Sharers and Knowledge Hoarders.  The hoarders believe in the value of their "Intellectual Property"(IP).  The products of their mind must be carefully guarded lest anyone steal their precious ideas.
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).

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.
