Video Killed The Blogging Star. Really.

Scoble leaves Microsoft to videoblog.

I think that tells you where all this is going.

If you are not thinking about video-networks and authenticity and you claim to be serious about this blogging stuff then you are in trouble. Really.

This doesn't mean Scoble will be successful.

What it means is that some folks are going to be very successful and get very rich. Even Microsoft folks see that.

    The Content Anarchy Utopia revolution is already here. Any Content, Any Amount, Any Time, Any Format, Any Place.

    Robert Scoble and Shel Israel, in their book and blog, Naked Conversations (nee The Red Couch) have issued the prophetic summons.

    And it’s not corporations, but entrepreneurs who are leading the charge.
