To Whom Much is Given, Much is Required (or, Scoble Syndrome)

Photo by Eric Skiff Here we go again. Another day in the life of an ongoing saga between megalomaniac Robert Scoble and myself. In this chapter of this saga, I point out why I have figured out the key thing that he has repeatedly not learned… to whom much is given, much is required. It […]
