So Scoble is leaving Microsoft. I think MS will be weaker as a result. Actually Scoble was probably too big for Microsoft, we couldn’t see so many other great evangelists or bloggers MS has because of the gravitational pull of Scoble, well at least I hope that’s the reason I can only name a few other stateside MS bloggers and only then because I knew their blogs before they joined MS.
Of course locally we have Rob Burke and Clare Dillon and they can be found on IrishBlogs.ie. MS is lucky to have those two as they’re doing a great job of promoting the Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft Ireland. Yet that’s just one group amongst many in MS. It might be good if Microsoft decided to show off some of their other great bloggers in Ireland and globally. Rob also needs to get his missus to blog about her lovely and very affordable mosaics. Model it on EnglishCut!

I bet that’ll grow in the next week or so.
So it seems Robert is off to Podtech.net. When you google for them you get:

That’s a lot of hits, well it seems to be until you see how many you get when you google for scoble:

I look forward to seeing how far Podtech will go with Scoble on their team.
