Two geeks, one perspective

16 Jun

Robert Scoble, technology evangelist, blogger and author, leaves Microsoft and the so-called blogosphere reacts in a frenzy of excitement.

Bill Gates, personal computer industry evangelist, philanthropist and author, announces plans to step back from the helm at Microsoft after more than 30 years, and the so-called mainstream media has a field day.

A note for those struggling to see the difference between these two stories. One of these men has helped define a wealth-generating industry and is now on a mission to save millions of lives (not through evangelism, though). Those who lack perspective on this should back-off from their barrage against the ‘mainstream media’.
