My Interview With Robert Scoble About Tech, Privacy, Redbull, And Israeli Tech

A few weeks ago in San Francisco, I attended one of the more eye-opening tech events I’ve ever been to. InContext was the name of the event and it was hosted by one of the more interesting startups out there, Everything.Me (if you’re an Android user, download it now. Thank me later.)

The Everything.Me Guys

The conference was about the next step in the mobile revolution, contextual computing. If you use Google Now, have seen “Her”, or wear technology of any kind on your body, you know what I am talking about. If not, and your not geeky like that, well, you need to be paying attention because, like it or not, that is where we are heading.

Our phones know more about us than ever before and they are leveraging that data to push us the content we want, when we want it. Everything.Me is just skating to where the puck is going.

Andry Grignon: Built the first iPhone.

Anyway, the event was truly fantastic and anyone who is anyone was in attendance. Some of the amazing people I was fortunate enough to meet include Tim Draper,  Harry McCracken, Benedict Evans, Raanan Bar-Cohen, Andy Grignon, and many more. You can see all of them and others I have met here. You can also see all the pictures and content from the event here and here.

Anyway, something I have wanted to do for a while now is produce video content. I plan on starting that this year, no matter what, but what better way to do so than to interview the mother of all interviewers, Robert Scoble. I have been following the Scobleizer for years now, and his quirkiness aside, the guy is awesome, both on a personal level (a true mensch) and on a professional level. Robert has probably seen more innovative technology than anyone else on the planet and to be honest, I am honored to call him a friend.

If you don’t already know Scoble, you must be living under a rock somewhere but even if you do, you might not know what it means to be Scobleized. Just ask the Siri guys or the Flipboard guys, they can tell you.
