I am saddened that Scoble is leaving Microsoft
I was shocked to learn that Scoble is leaving Microsoft, but probably not that surprised. I told him a few months ago that I was very impressed by the influence that he has had on the company and his bravery in achieving it. I am sure that many other people should share in that praise, but for me it is Scoble who has been largely responsible for creating a completely different vision of what Microsoft is like and the way that it operates. I hope Microsoft are able to think through the implications of his loss and to consider how they continue his good work, especially his dedication to cutting through the marketing and being open and honest. Chris and Dave write nice posts supporting his decision and I am always happy to see people making such decisions from their heart.
