  1. Hmmmmm. Video of someone writing on a whiteboard, complaining that there isn’t proper substance and gravity in current media.

    Reminds me of being in Media Studies 101 back in the late 70′s. But it was chalk, not whiteboards.

    Technology is really amazing.

  3. @CC – “New Media is the same as Old Media, just minus the writers and talent”

    I recently saw this quote about Robert (not very flattering, but follows your line about talent)

    The writings of Robert Scoble are like a thousand monkeys typing, short about 999 monkeys.

  5. I created the video not to shine the light on *the megaphone* per se but instead *the source*. If you’re an asshole, you’re going to be an asshole on any medium. “New media” or “social networking” or “conversation marketing” is not the point of the video; douchebags are.

  7. Great video.
    Like Al Capone said in the Untouchables movie, “Sometimes we laugh because it’s funny and sometimes we laugh because it’s true.” Well it’s definitely true here.

    Scoble, I give you props for posting this, since it’s targetted at your vocation (or at least, avocation). It’s like you’re calling out your own (a)vocation by positng this, and reminds me of Microsoft calling themselves out by making that “If Microsoft designed the iPod box” video. But Microsoft didn’t just call themselves out, they did something about it and uncluttered their packaging. But will you (and other New Media Douchebags) improve likewise?

  9. Fuck that noize! When Twitterquake happens, it’ll be a so-called ‘New Media Douchebag’ that tweets the alarm from the rubble of a South Park shopfront, just so hatas like this guy will know about the poisonous chemical cloud headed his way!

    And will this ingrate even tweet a word of thanks? He won’t even be on Twitter! Who’s the REAL douchebag?

  11. New Media is the same as Old Media, just minus the writers and talent, production quality and distribution outlets. Of course all this is a good thing, you see, as it’s more ‘human’ and ‘authentic’.

  15. Was this supposed to be a backlash against top Web 2.0 tech bloggers.

    He mentions O’Reilly by name, but who does Pete & Scott represent.

    Is it who we think it is?

    Did they NOT like this guy’s Start-up.

    You can make enemies in Silicon Valley easily. :-(
