If you read my weblog on occasion, you may have noticed
that I have steadfastly avoided the blogger clique: the href="http://intertwingly.net/blog/">Ruby's, the href="http://www.scripting.com/">Winers, the href="http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/">Scobles. I have not taken a
position on the RSS wars (unless you count linking to href="http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/dbox/">Don Box but not Sam or Dave) and
I haven't dragged my readers into the daily, digital fray. Instead,
I have attempted to maintain a laser-like focus on versioning and
source control technology. I focus on a single subject--most of the
time--because that's what I know and that's where my cycles can benefit the most
number of people. My blog is not an immortality project or a
soapbox. Rather, it as a microphone that I am honored to use for
as long as the MC will allow. I don't use it to disseminate my political
views, scream in the wilderness, or talk just to hear myself talk. I treat it as
an information medium, as a channel for communicating ideas, and as a sounding
board for the documentation that I write for VSS and Visual
Studio. Increasingly, my blogroll is populated by like-minded,
domain-specific weblogs that are written by real people with interesting
ideas and a serious agenda; people like href="http://www.scottonwriting.com/sowblog/">Scott Mitchell, href="http://blogs.gotdotnet.com/raymondc/">Raymond Chen, href="http://blogs.gotdotnet.com/craigs/">Craig Skibo, and href="http://shirky.com/writings/rss.cgi">Clay Shirky.

At the other end of the blogging spectrum is a fellow Microsoft
employee, the comically famous and infamous href="http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/">Robert Scoble, a man with as
many opinions as ideas as words as fragmentary thoughts as run-on sentences
as friends as detractors who finds order and meaning for his chaotic life in the
form of a public diary that he calls a weblog. I haven't quite figured
the guy out but I do know that href="http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/">Scoble's diary is like a
cross between a Mozart symphony, an episode of Jerry Springer, the Wall
Street Journal, and Sabado Gigante. It is exhausting, immersive, and
at times, maddening. It is a modern serial in the Dickensian
tradition. It is linksalicious. href="http://www.furrygoat.com">Steve says that "Scoble is a human
Heh, maybe I should change my name to $cobleizer.
Update: Russell doesn't want me linking to his site anymore, so he's
redirecting my site to a different place. You'll have to enter his URL into your
browser by hand. Ahh, the fun."
I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when reading the
for this post. Typical href="http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/">Scobleizer.
Until today, I have kept Robert Scoble at arm's length. No more. My
blogroll needs a little spice. Robert, welcome the href="http://blogs.gotdotnet.com/korbyp/blogxbrowsing.asmx/GetRss?">Wunderkammer.
