Uber video blogger Robert Scoble announced today at LeWeb3 in Paris that he is leaving Podtech for greener pastures.
Scoble is best known for his blog, Scobleizer, which came to prominence while he worked as a technical evangelist at Microsoft. He co-authored (with Shel Israel) the book Naked Conversations: How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk.
I caught up with Scoble just after he left the stage and had him describe his plans ahead.
Scoble plans to join Fast Company or start his own company, with the intention of revolutionizing the video format by using top of the line equipment to live broadcasting via mobile phones and such.
Scoble fought against the notion of creating CNN 2.0, insisting that he wanted something entirely new, not something derivative.
