About this event

As Startup Liaison for Rackspace, the Open Cloud Computing Company, Scoble travels the world looking for what's happening on the bleeding edge of technology for Rackspace's startup program. He's interviewed thousands of executives and technology innovators and reports what he learns in books ("The Age of Context," a book coauthored with Forbes author Shel Israel, has been released at http://amzn.to/AgeOfContext ), YouTube, and many social media sites where he's followed by millions of people. I'm a geek who grew up in Silicon Valley (my dad was an engineer at Lockheed) and since 1985 I've been building online communities. In 2000 I started my technology blog, http://scobleizer.com, and my life has been on a rocketship ever since. In 2003-2006 I worked at Microsoft as an evangelist and one of the five guys who started Microsoft's famous Channel9 video community.  
I'm now working at Rackspace as Startup Liaison Officer (I go around the world to study and make media about world-changing startups). You'll also see my videos on http://youtube.com/scobleizer but the best place to watch me now is on Facebookon Twitter or on my blog. Our professional videos, done in studio, are on Rackspace's YouTube site.
I'm also the father of three sons, Patrick, 20, Milan, 6, and Ryan, 4 (as of 2014). Lots of fun and they are all geeks in training too.
