Scoble in a suit?

You haven’t seen this before. I’m in a suit for our first WorkFast.tv show which featured Mark Bernstein, head of the Palo Alto Research Labs (where Microsoft Word and much of what became the original Macintosh was invented). We filmed this live last week. This is the show that’s done by Revision 3 under contract with FastCompany.tv (we use their studios and their employees do everything).

UPDATE: Revision 3 does the camera work, runs the studio, etc. Shel Israel plans the content and FastCompany does the sales for the show and the management.

If you watched this, what did you think?

We’ll do it again live on Friday at 10 a.m. Pacific Time. This week?

Ishmael Ghalimi. Who is he? Well, he runs the Office 2.0 conference and keeps the definitive list of Office 2.0 apps on the Web. Come and join us, we’ll get interactive, too, and take your questions (if you have any for Ishmael, leave them here).

Comments

  1. Question for Ishmael : Why hasnt the adoption of office 2.0 been according to expectations? Promises of a full replacement of the desktop version by 2010 doesnt seem to be happening.

  5. I’m sorry but that suit looks straight off the rack. You need to get it tailored or something. The side view looks like a kid playing dress-up in daddy’s suit.

  10. The suit looked great, and perhaps a bit in keeping with a studio type setting, vs. out in the field interview. The Mark Bernstein interview was a good start, touching on technologies that laid the groundwork for today. Reinforces what is increasingly obvious, namely aggregation of relevant content from disparate sources is the big challenge facing end-users, of which co-host Scoble said as much.

  17. What would Suit 2.0 look like?

    It’d be great if you wore a green-screen kind of tie so you could add animations in post production.

  20. I liked the format and content of the show Robert. From a production perspective I don’t like the black background as Shel and Mark seemed to blend in with the background. So either go with a white background like Apple’s commercials (for the web compression benefit) or have your guest and hosts wear lighter suites. But most business people have dark suites.

    Keep up the good work, I’ll be tuning into your future shows!

  26. I watched a piece of the live stream and saw the suit. ROFL. So that’s why they call it work? Because you wear a suit? No one wears suits to work anymore. (Except the suits.)

  35. Hahaha! I thought you meant you were in a lawsuit from your first show at first until I read it a couple times. I think it hits your audience for the show well – not sure if it hits the geek crowd quite as well though, but I don’t think that’s what you were trying to target. The live filming before, during, and after the show perhaps hit that geek audience however.

  46. Robert-

    Weird seeing you in a suit, but even weirder to see you squished. Looks like they have the wrong aspect ratio set for the video. Not quite as bad as a 4:3 image stretched to 16:9, but not quite right either

    You look thinner than I remember :-)

    Good luck with the new show. Feeling very Charlie Rose and that’s a good thing.

    See you at the Pulver breakfast tomorrow.

  57. Robert,

    In the suit, it looks like you just graduated with an MBA- and we all know the world needs more business grad blowhards ;) It’s a good looking suit, although the sales ppl at Macy’s rarely do a great job with tailoring. I need to hook you up with a real tailor in the city!

  60. I actually thought it looked more like a suit given to convicts when released from prison. Kudos for maintaining the geek stereotype by buying off the rack from a chain dept store. Then again, you could have gone lower and did the Men’s Warehouse. BTW, you do know you are supposed to get it tailored, right? You don’t just try the coat on then pay and walk out.

    The show was good. Could hold the audience much better than the cell phone videos. I too would like to understand the actual adoption of Office 2.0 technologies as everyday tools at companies normal people would recognize.

  71. Sigh, the smug “A&S Caracenized” eliteness of the $4,000 suits, get over yourselves, off-the-racks can work fairly well if you know how to dress yourself and have a body frame that is suit-able. The UK makes suits a hierarchy, where only the half monarchy can afford, America has democratized that all up, yet another good reason for 1776. Alterations yes, custom tailorizeds that cost more than a MacBook Pro, no. Although D&G, Etro is a good middle-way, and Hickey-Freeman can work if got medium coin, but really J. Press or Lauren for most non jet-setters. Trouble is, given the biz casual market, harder and harder to find reasonable-priced tailoring or even to find it.

    And Macy’s is a level up beyond the usual “department store”, and even someplace like Kohl’s can grant decent Chaps/Access/Apt. 9 fashionized suits.

    Super 110 is best for Cally, not being Scotland or Chicago, doncha dare flannel or tweed. And avoid the Polyesters (Microfiber, Teflon) unless in a blend, and even then. Linen/Tropical are dry-cleaners best friends, avoid. Just go basic wool (merino, cashmere and angora) each works depending upon setting. And don’t go Eurotard, Cotton is fine. And Houndstooth, Pinstripe and Twill, I generally avoid, going more Fortune 500ifed Glenurquhart and Herringbone, but your mileage may vary. Pinstripe always looks too Mafiaosoized, tho International Male’s Imperial makes pin fairly acceptable.

    Super 110 is best for Cally, not being Scotland or Chicago, doncha dare flannel or tweed. And avoid the Polyesters (Microfiber, Teflon) unless in a blend, and even then. Linen/Tropical are dry-cleaners best friends, avoid. Just go basic wool (merino, cashmere and angora) each works depending upon setting. And don’t go Eurotard, Cotton is fine. And Houndstooth, Pinstripe and Twill, I generally avoid, going more Fortune 500ifed Glenurquhart and Herringbone, but your mileage may vary. Pinstripe always looks too Mafiaosoized, tho International Male’s Imperial makes pin fairly acceptable.

  75. Sigh, the smug “A&S Caracenized” eliteness of the $4,000 suits, get over yourselves, off-the-racks can work fairly well if you know how to dress yourself and have a body frame that is suit-able. The UK makes suits a hierarchy, where only the half monarchy can afford, America has democratized that all up, yet another good reason for 1776. Alterations yes, custom tailorizeds that cost more than a MacBook Pro, no. Although D&G, Etro is a good middle-way, and Hickey-Freeman can work if got medium coin, but really J. Press or Lauren for most non jet-setters. Trouble is, given the biz casual market, harder and harder to find reasonable-priced tailoring or even to find it.

  79. I detest suits.

    Thankfully, I’ve never had a job where they were required. Jeans and t-shirts only.

    Suits are stifling, and inverted nooses, er, ties, are the worst way to spend your day.

    No thanks… I’ll stay dressed down, no matter how much money is involved.

  82. I have always wondered why the suit is going out of fashion. I mean it is certainly still in use and although the use in the tech sector is non-existant I do not see the problem with it anywhere else. A good suit is hard to find and harder to have tailored correctly.

    Well, that’s exactly why there’s a Men’s Wearhouse, Macy’s, JC Penny, Filene’s Basement, Nordstrom’s Rack, Today;s Man. For people that don’t care how their suit looks. But more important, how it feels. If I’m going be asked to suffer through wearing a suit I’m damn well going to be comfortable in it. So, I’m going to go bespoke. A bespoke suit is as comfortable as “business casual”. No wonder so many men hate to wear suits. They buy them from chain dept stores that employ barely competent tailors. Thus, you walk out with a suit that neither looks, nor feels good to wear. And if you want to go the extra mile, get a pair of custom made shoes. They will feel like slippers, and last much longer than off he rack shoes. But again, that’s just me. I like to be comfortable.

  98. I like to be comfortable.

    Me too, just I like to be comfortable for $300, rather than $3,000. Heck, designer dress and casual ‘tags-still-on-them’ shirts I find all the time at the thrifts, gotta know what to look for tho, insert education here, else you will end up buying the godforsaken Croft and Barrow, George or Puritans. Wellington, Florida Goodwill best-in-world, Palm Beach never-wear-anything-twice riche-richs buy $25k summer wardrobe’s and then dump them, most never worn, $70 at Macy’s, $7 at Goodwill.

    Not against the bespoke, just don’t buy into the smug and elite tudes of such, never use the chain tailors gawd no, but saying you can BUY from them. Chaps suits on clearance sale, jacket and pants for $88, heck yes, then get it tailored, which is exactly what I did, came out 90-95% there compared to my 2 bespokes, at 90-95% price reduction. Democracy in action.
