I couldn’t think of a better post to write for my FIRST POST of 2008 to congratulate my brethren, particularly Lynne Johnson over at FastCompany.com for the news that Robert Scoble will join them for the launch of Fast Company.tv. As you know I am a contributor to the Fast Company Expert Blogger section with the aforementioned Mrs. Johnson being my very patient senior editor. Now Johnson blogs that one of the most popular technology bloggers in the world Robert Scoble will be joining the Fast Company family as Managing Director of Fast Company.tv
Robert Scoble, one of the most popular technology bloggers in the world, will serve as Managing Director of the site, which is slated to launch in March.
Scoble’s daily video series, ScobleTV, will be featured on FastCompany.TV. Scoble’s current video show receives about one million views a month. Scoble is highly regarded for his coverage of emerging technology trends from both start ups and established tech companies, especially in the Web 2.0 and social media space.
Scoble will also bring his popular blog, Scobleizer.com, to the Mansueto Digital network of sites, which includes FastCompany.com, Inc.com, IncBizNet.com and IncTechnology.com.
“I decided to join up with Fast Company because I wanted to work with a brand well known for covering innovation and technology in an authoritative, provocative manner,” said Scoble. “And I’m excited that the Mansueto Digital websites are innovating in the social media space themselves.”
