Scoble is best known for his blog, Scobleizer, which came to prominence while he worked as a technical evangelist at Microsoft. He co-authored (with Shel Israel) the book Naked Conversations: How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk.
So Scoble seems to be following the video movement into streaming and switching country, hoping to score some private investment money or to cut a deal with Fast Company. Best of luck to him. He’s a real hard worker.
Crampton had a related post a month or so go about Otetsudai Networks, a company with a business model that might work great for Robert between now and the final fizzle of Bubble 2.0.
In this video, Joi Ito describes how Otetsudai Networks is using mobile phones with continuous presence to create a new labor market in Japan of people who walk the streets using their mobile phones to offer to work for few hours. All you need to do is switch your phone onto â€œLooking for Workâ€ and it will match your time available and skill set with an employer nearby who has a job and salary that fits. (Joi has also blogged about the company.)
