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.
