Robert Scoble is a technical evangelist who works for Microsoft and maintains the popular blog, Scobleizer. He lives in Bothell, Washington.

Although Scoble often promotes Microsoft products like Tablet PCs and Windows Vista, at the same time he criticizes his own employer and praises its competitors (like Apple Computer and Google). He publishes his cell phone number on his blog and urges people to contact him directly with issues, as well as accepting comments on his blog.

Scoble has long been known as a prominent advocate of both RSS technology and the Tablet PC. He has previously been involved with both these technologies in a professional capacity: at NEC Mobile Solutions, where he was sales support manager, and UserLand Software, where he was director of marketing.

Besides blogging, Scoble is part of the Channel9 MSDN Videos team producing educational and evangelist mini-films targeted towards students and professional developers.
