I honestly don't know whether Mike Arrington (TechCrunch) and Robert Scoble both knew about it when Arrington broke the story that Scoble was leaving Podcast for Fast Company ... in the middle of his speech in Paris last month (with Arrington blogging from the audience).
It's probably unlikely based on the on-stage response from Scoble and others accounts (and it's not entirely 'unlike' Arrington :)
Whether you love Robert or not, there was a huge media blitz that followed. Despite his years in the biz, the guy still knows how to make headlines.
Earlier today, Beet.tv 'confirmed' that Scoble has joined Fast Company and starts his new gig tomorrow. You can read the entire piece at Beet.tv here .
Robert's blog at this hour says 'Jobless' ....
From 'radio' to video, once things for certain. Scoble looks like he's havin' a awful lot of fun ...
Update : FastCompany's Press Release is now here and Robert's comments are posted this morning here .
