Observing Scoble’s authenticity & risk

[ -still learning Final Cut so in lieu of footage, see thoughts on new media’s power ]

I agree with Guy Pelletier.

What’s that saying again, “99% of life is showing up”…?

Scoble is doing just that in observing Edwards’ first leg out as a candidate. He’s giving a lot of credence to citizen journalism and to PodTech by agreeing to do this. And at an increased risk to himself too I think. Criticism for his decision is inevitable but this time, he’s a citizen journalist covering the technical elements of a presidential candidate’s campaign. That increased visibility comes with more personal risk. There’s a unique vulnerability to his proximity to Edwards and good for him for showing up.
