Yesterday evening a small group of local bloggers and blog-interested people met A-list- and former Microsoft Evangelist-Blogger Robert “The Scobleizer” Scoble, his wife Maryam and Robert’s aunt in the MartinsbrÃ¤u (nice pic ) in Freiburg. I’m a long-time reader and you could say that his blog improved MS’s overall image, his book “Naked conversations” helped to start up and inspire corporate blogging projects, not only in the US. Robert is now also pod- and videocasting, interviewing CEOs and Geeks in The ScobleShow for PodTech.
He signed the books Remo and I brought along. Topics discussed varied, blogging, conferences, geek, biz I, II and non-geek (Thx, Tim) alike, all interesting and in a quiet comfortable atmosphere. A-list bloggers are humans, too I really enjoyed talking to Robert and Maryam and get to know the other people who showed up. Just before going home, the Scobleizers couldn’t resist and got @work, did an interview with Caro, a local freelance
(Caro? yep, sort of) online-journalist. She put some more photos on Flickr.
Remo filmed the “Making of” and posted it here.
Robert, thx again for your invitation, it was nice meeting you and Maryam.
