Scoble Mountain

Dave Winer: “In retrospect, Mount Scoble was a lot higher than I thought.”

Related: On a comment to my previous post, I added this: “I think Robert is a role-model of how those inside a company will be learning how to talk WITH the world. I believe (PR pioneers) Bernays and Ivy were among the first to (advocate that talking TO the public was) something a company could “manage”…Scoble actually took the teachings of Doc Searls, Dave Weinberger, etc., and applied them to one of the largest corporations in the world — and lived to write a book about it. Was it perfect? No. Will others do it better? Yes. There will be many more examples, but he has blazed a trail.”

More related: Robert comments on the mountain of coverage his announcement is receiving. Also, Robert’s departure announcement is the first I’ve ever heard of that inspired a commemorative tile coaster.

By the way, this eulogistic showering of praise on Robert sounds like we’re bidding him farewell. That’s not my plan.

    Thanks, it does seem that I’ve died, doesn’t it? But, to innovate first you must destroy. I think that’s part of the process here. We’re saying goodbye to the old Scoble and hello to a new one. 🙂
