Scoble posts his view regarding Microsoft, benefits, and changes at: http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/2004/07/08.html#a7970. It's a good view to read and points out that Microsoft truly has some kick-ass benefits.
However, while Robert feels that his Channel 9 subversive community site represents something any employee can do at Microsoft, I think he fails to take into account the currency he has coming into the company, especially on the rise of RSS and blogging. He can get away with a lot more than I can.
Do I wish more employees would do something like this as well? Yes. Do I wish we didn't have to go on a hiring spree to acquire stars like Scoble, Box, and Sells? Yes. Do I wish we could focus on growing our own rather smart people from the inside to be Scobles, Boxes, and Sells? Hell yes!
