Monday, March 3, 2008 or It's here. blasted off right on time this morning, although the launch was barely visible on the 'Microsoft Research Worldwide Telescope'.

For those of you that haven't been following the former Microsoft (and Podcast) employee's globe trotting and video escapades, Robert Scoble has been in love with the Microsoft Research's new online telescope project since it's first private showing and it among his lead stories this morning on Fast Company Magazine's new venture.

Scoble left Podcast to join Fast Company as the General Manager of the new video venture several month's ago.

The first edition defaults to '' but there is another channel as well appropriately called Fast Company Live. The outspoken and opinionated Scoble has a huge blogger audience and is closely followed by many in the industry providing a smooth launch.

Will it stick? We'll have to wait and see.
