Robert Scoble makes the front page:
Scoble and other local Bloggers are featured in this front page article in the Seattle Times.
Arguably the most famous blogger in the Seattle area is Robert Scoble, a technical evangelist at Microsoft. Scoble's blog, called Scobleizer, receives international attention and ranks among the top 100 blogs on the Web.
Last week, Scobleizer came in at 44, based on the number of other blogs linking to his site. Technorati uses those links as a measure of the blog's influence.
Scoble says blogging and other forms of direct communication over the Web are here to stay. He uses software to scan 800 different Web sources a day, looking for news about Microsoft and highlights of daily political news.
"The word-of-mouth information networks are becoming more and more efficient every day," Scoble writes.
