CXOTalk interview


Scoble talks on the Google+ hangout about how smartphones have created his concept of the age of context, where wearables, sensors, social apps, data and the ‘Internet of things’ are converging to create what he says is a new kind of operating system. He talks about his job interviewing startup founders about the future of tech, and talking with people like Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Mark Benioff of Salesforce rather than enterprise tech companies:

Those are typically the people who are pushing the future. You don’t really hear about something crazy starting at enterprises.

Substance interview


Scoble talks about innovations like Google Glass and what he calls the age of context, where online publishers can push out news and wait for experts commenting on blogs, officials, and other knowledgeable people to correct it if there are mistakes, or amplify the story.

By commenting they’re adding on to the story. They’re either correcting stuff that you got wrong or adding on to the understanding or sharing facts. That’s what I like about the real-time open Internet … The story could evolve and does have some incorrect stuff in the early hours. It did on the pro stuff too like CNN. You saw stuff that turned out not to be true for a whole lot of reasons because witnesses aren’t very accurate with their language.

TechCrunch interview

I think it’s going to be a war of wearables – do we buy an Apple Watch or Google Glass?

He says two other trends are going to be whether pay TV and ultra HD can compete with streaming, and whether Apple going to ‘take over the entire world’.

In junior high I got a tour of the Apple building when it was one building…which gives you a sense of how nuts the world can get. I fell in love with computers..ever since then I’ve been at the change of old to new
