The Case For @Scobleizer

Image representing Robert Scoble as depicted i...Image via CrunchBaseOver on FriendFeed, there's a conversation wherein @TechCrunch called out @Scobleizer on his social media addiction. To which I say, huh? The numbers that are significant are these: 7 hours a day on Friend Feed, for, a year, more or less.

@TechCrunch states that @Scobleizer's “Addiction” has decreased his blogging time, and everyone that matters, has seen this as a problem. @Scobleizer stated his rebut as it were, somewhere. Points were made by both sides, however, let's do the math, shall we?

Now, I bill my time @ $150/hr minimum 2, when I“m hired as a consultant. @Scobleizer may make more or less than that, so, let's stay with that #. Based on the above, 7x7x52x150= wait for it, a whole lot a money. Or, $382, 200 US, lest you didn't think I had a calculator. There are too many other things that I don't know, and if this goes viral as I suspect it will, someone's going to straighten me out. But I digress....

If the company that he works for pays him less than that, they're getting a great deal. If he makes more than that, He's getting a great deal. Why should we believe anything beyond that? Most of use work eight hours a day, and we make significantly less. @Scobleizer has found a way to work only 7. I want that job!!!

The Blatant Self Promotion Tour

In an effort to continue what I started, And to win really just the nomination for the award, I give you more, Blatant Self Promotion. I could probably write this better, however, I'm going for the circular thing mentioned in the original post, and I'm trying some new stuff....

So, if my followers read this first, you must read the article referenced above, at which point, the link to nominate me should be in there. I think. I haven't quite tested everything yet. That's right, I'm making this up as I go....

It's snowing at Word Press.

I don't know if this is site wide, however, the last two Word Press blogs I've visited, have visible snowflakes falling in front of not only the picture, but the text as well. I'd twitter about this, but it takes more than 140 characters....
