Hey Patrick. I went to college with your dad at West Valley JC in Saratoga, CA. You think he is a geek today? You should have seen him then. Just kidding (not). You should ask him about him posing for a picture in the school paper while grabbing his girlfriend's...how should I say this...back side. It was quite the talked about photo. Anyway, I guess that's enough getting your pa in trouble for one day.

I only know your dad from his blog and
from what dave Winer writes and podcasts about him. He seems like a pretty cool guy that loves computers and works more than he should like most geek dads... Since I'm a geek
I know that I become addicted to
spending too much time reading and not enough time with my family (at times).
I hope your dad handles the reading, the travel and still manages to spend enough time with you.

You mom seems like a great perosn as well. You could have done a lot worse picking your parents. Trust me on that one.

I've known your Dad since before I got into blogging (or founding Feedster.com) and I have nothing but respect for him. Your Dad is, without question, a damn good guy. He's a straight shooter, intellectually honest and smart as a whip.

Hey Patrick. Welcome to the blogosphere.
Your dad is a very cool dude, but you knew that already, didn't you ?

Your dad is one great guy - You are so lucky. Only one thing though - why didnt he bring you to Europe last time? If you can wrangle it in the future. I will show you how to punt in Cambridge (UK)!

[I removed my previous post because through Silly Clicking(tm) on my part I sent it unfinished]

I ran into your Dad's blog from the Microsoft site and from there into Channel9.
He's great, to put it simply (and don't let anyone tell you anything else).
He makes great videos on C9, I love his blog. He's the coolest Microsoft guy out there. Could you get him to attend the MSDN/Technet sessions next sprng in The Netherlands :) I'd love to meet him in person. And get him to take you along for the ride :D

I read your dad's blog to try and learn abit more about tech and other things. Even though i have abandoned Microsoft it's still good to read as visits a lot of other tech companies and has a lot of geek friends who he refers to in his blog.

Of course the highlights were your podcasts but that's for another topic.

I think Scoble Senior is the future (which I guess makes you the future's future...or something like that). I think that your Dad hits it right on with his thoughts about company/customer interaction and relations and I look forward to seeing what else he will be doing at Microsoft.

Oh, by the way, should we call Robert Scoble 'Maxi Scobleizer'?

Hi Patrick, thanks for turning on comments for non-blogger users.

The "Scobleizer" blog has somehow, strangely, made me hate Microsoft less. I guess it's just nice to have some transparency.

One thing's for sure, he's got the blogosphere wrapped around his little finger, and if he leaves Microsoft (or is fired, per one of his recent posts), I have confidence that he'll do wonders for another - * cough * - possibly more deserving company.

I read the elder Scoble's blog because he tells a lot of good stories, and he isn't afraid of saying his piece. In one day, he could criticize his employer for something, and then praise something noteworthy that they've done.
I also LOVE channel9. He managed to get a video interview with both Ballmer and Gates, and even asked some interesting questions. These videos he does, combined with his push to open MSFT to blogging, has really changed a lot of perceptions about Microsoft. I know that I'm more excited about Windows Longhorn, Xbox360, Visual Studio 2005, and so on. Meeting the people of MSFT puts a real human face on what was before a corporate monolith that only spoke through PR channels.

Hey mini Pat. :)

Nice to see you blogging. We have a replacement for Scoble then, eh?

Just one point. Be careful with the grammar (especially puncuation) in your posts. It really shows and in my opinion is very important factor distinguishing the professionals from the rookies.

I'd suggest you turn on 'word verification' for comments to prevent spam in the comments.

And you'll have to read up a lot of stuff if you want to be a successful geek/blogger. :)

HELLO, I READ YOUR FATHER BLOG DAILY. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAD A GAMERTAG AND IF SO WOULD YOU JOIN MY FRIEND LIST alijahg34.

I think your dad is arrogent and most of the time I end up laughing at his blogging because he has his head stuck way up his arse. You asked...

It's not really a comment on this post but I got to say it's great you love the bass guitar. I love it as well, tried to play it when I was 20 or so but I just can't do. So I stick to listening to others. My father was a big fan of The Who and their bass guitarist (John Entwistle) was one of the best. Melissa Auf Der Maur is great too. What's your favorite bass guitarist?

Patrick - I read your mom's advice to you and it's pretty good advice. I also noticed that one of the commenters here decided that he would tell you what he "really thought" about your dad.

Most people would never say something like that in person... to you... in front of your dad. It would just be rude and your dad might have some strong words to say back to this guy.

He might even call him some names that you are not allowed to use.
And he would be perfectly justified to call him those names because people shouldn't say thing just to hurt someone feelings.

Here's how this happens. You probably have some kid at scholl that doesn't have any friends and most of the other kids say rude or hurtful things to this kid. Well, someday that kid will grow up and be very angry and the ineternet will offere them a chance to get even for the problems they lived through at school.

The guy that thought is was OK to just say something bad about your dad is someone that needs to hurt other people... becuase of what the other kids did to him when he was your age.

It's actually pretty sad and no one can change what happened now. What we can do is just put the comment is a bucket labeled "Trash" and ignore it becuase there is nothing you can say that will fix the real problem.
Don't try to fix these people with an argument. Just ignore them...
They will go find someone else to hurt or be mean to.

And never let them hurt you, if you can help it. I know it's hard to just turn off feelings when someone says rude things about someone you know and love... but it's the best solution to a problem that isn't yours. It's their problem. And we can hope that they get over those school days... someday soon.

I think your dad is both a good guy and an important influence in his industry. Not just at Microsoft, but across the industry as a whole. And the best part is he seems to do it by just being himself. You can't beat that, and I think a lot of people can learn from that example: Be yourself. I know your uncle, too, and he's a good guy, so in my book you're in good company all the way around. Glad to see you blogging. the podcasts you and your dad have done are cool. You should keep that up. :)

Who's your dad again?

In all seriousness, mini, your dad rocks. We even created a fan club for him. I am proud to call him a friend.

Hey Patrick,

We can all write wonderful and great things about your dad. He's a smart guy and is clearly liked by many. But what is REALLY important is what YOU think of your dad. Make sure you let him know how cool you think he is and just how proud you might be of him. Because it is clear from reading his blog (as many of us do) that he is very proud and fond of you.

Take care and good luck with the new blog. You have already shown that you are on the right track by trying to engage your readers in a conversation. That will make the experience much more rewarding for both you and your audience.

Patrick,

I've had the pleasure of meeting your dad, sharing a hotel room with him, and calling him a friend. How much he loves you and, even cooler, how much he likes you, comes through in all sorts of ways. I have a 10-year old son who also has a blog. He plays the piano, so maybe you guys can form a band!

If I had to sum up your dad in two words, they would be fair and kind. It's a pretty simple formula - do something that your passionate about and treat people well in the process.

Have a great time being a kid!

I don't think there is a rss feed, but here's the atom feed http://miniscobleizer.blogspot.com/atom.xml

Hi Patrick, Congrats on your new blog. I met your dad when we were both at SJSU, before you were even alive! Back then he used to talk a lot about "smart quotes" and "The Mac is not a Typewriter." We lost touch after graduation and then I found his blog a year ago (via Steve Sloan) and what was he talking about? Smart quotes and "The Mac is not a Typewriter"! At least he's consistent. And not a bad guy, either! So, welcome to the blogosphere. You already have more readers than I do. Punk. :)

It's your Dad's laugh that tells of a jolly soul. Way to go with the blog. And what a great Halloween costume that I saw at Maryam's blog. Perfect.
