WHEN ROBERT SCOBLE visited the annual IT@Cork convention, he worked rooms like a politician. His sincere interest won over college students, jaded bloggers as well as unwitting men and women from all walks of life. His ease of handling crowds and his aplomb with a packed audience shows a mastery of active conversation skills. He's done it again at Blogher. Politicians both sides of the Atlantic Ocean should consider learning something from Scoble's example. Yvonne Divita writes:
"Oh - met Robert Scoble. Yep. THAT Robert Scoble. He's better looking and way more friendly than I imagined. He gets my vote when he runs for office. (that will get the rumor mongers chatting away; no - to my knowledge he isn't running for office and has no desire to do so but - as a good techie girl, I think he should. We need someone with skills in the White House.)"
