If even a small percentage of Microsoft employees take him seriously (and many at least read his stuff), then this will only serve to help Yahoo.
You see, having a company like Microsoft focus too tightly on defeating Google in whatever Google decides to do means they spend less time paying attention to us and more time trying to beat up one of our competitors.
What's not to love about that?! :-)
In his latest scheme, he'd like to see Microsoft and Yahoo "clone the Google API" (which Google API? That's not entirely clear.)
If Scoble really thinks that having a non-Google API is the real barrier to adoption, then I suspect he's not trying very hard.
Keep focusing on Google man... And bring as many of your co-workers along for the ride as you can!
