Scoble is about to get spammed

Whether he actually sees that spam is beyond me. What’s good for the goose is not necessary good for the goslings, which is why I suggest everyone NOT follow Robert Scoble’s lead and post all their personal information on their blogs, like he did today.

Most people don’t have the luxury of hiding behind Microsoft’s myriad of firewalls, filters, and whatever else they employ that makes them so confident about security. Nor do they have a multi-billion dollar company to back them should a little internet dilly-dallying turn south on them.

The rest of the world is getting hammered, maybe because their address isn’t 1 Microsoft Way.

As a side note, I think the whole maneuver is a bit arrogant, and enormously irresponsible.

***UPDATE***

And now he is leaving Microsoft. I wonder whether the move is because he got tired of the spam, or spinning stories for the Redmond giant (?).
