Startup Liaison for Rackspace & "Launcher of a Thousand Startups"
As Startup Liaison for Rackspace, the Open Cloud Computing Company, Robert Scoble travels the world looking for what's happening on the bleeding edge of technology for Rackspace's startup program. He's interviewed thousands of executives and technology innovators and reports what he learns in books ("The Age of Context," a book coauthored with Forbes author Shel Israel, has been released at http://amzn.to/AgeOfContext ), YouTube, and many social media sites where he's followed by millions of people.
Robert is a geek who grew up in Silicon Valley (my dad was an engineer at Lockheed) and since 1985 he has been building online communities. In 2000 Robert started his technology blog, http://scobleizer.com, and his life has been on a rocketship ever since. In 2003-2006 he worked at Microsoft as an evangelist and one of the five guys who started Microsoft's famous Channel9 video community.
Robert is now working at Rackspace as Startup Liaison Officer (he goes around the world to study and make media about world-changing startups). You'll also see his videos on http://youtube.com/scobleizer but the best place to watch him now is on Facebook, on Twitter or on his blog. His professional videos, done in studio, are on Rackspace's YouTube site.
The real-time streaming web is changing his life faster than he can imagine, and lets him keep in touch with thousands of technology and business innovators all around the world.
Robert is also the father of three sons, Patrick, 20, Milan, 6, and Ryan, 4 (as of 2014). Lots of fun and they are all geeks in training too.
