Robert Scoble is Back
Thursday, May 19, 2016 by Ron Chester ★

Robert Scoble has returned to his blog with a shockingly open long read about his financial challenges living in Silicon Valley. I remember years ago being verrrrrry impressed that this guy gave out his cell phone number on his postings on the Internet. Now he's gone way beyond that in openness. Surely he has one of the most extensive contact lists in the entire field of technology, so it seems to me he will surely find a new gig that will work for him. For years he has seemed like a little kid in a candy store, describing new technologies with an enthusiasm and spirit that seemed contagious. 

I used to read him on Google+ but then he switched to writing mostly on Facebook and I fell off the sled. He mentions that "Fred Wilson was right that I gave up something when I left my blog."  Wilson has been blogging since 2003 and doesn't plan to give it up. I've been listening to an interesting interview of Wilson from the Iowa City Public Library.
