Like Father, Like Son
I first met my friend Robert Scoble back in 2004 at a Geek Dinner at Barney’s Burgers in San Francisco back when he worked for Microsoft. Since then I’ve been able to spend a lot of time getting to know him. We’ve worked on photowalking videos together, travelled together, hung out with Ansel Adam’s son together, spent the night in an iPhone line together, and almost everywhere we’ve gone we’ve both had cameras (him usually video, me usually still).
I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Robert over the years. He’s a warm, kind, genuine and generous person. He’s always on top of what the next big thing, the early adopter’s early adopter, is and is a wonderful contributor to technology media.
Along the way I’ve gotten to know Robert’s family too as well. It was amazing to me yesterday to see how fast his son Patrick Scoble is growing. I’ve got a photo of Robert and Patrick from the Maker Fair in 2006 and you can hardly tell they are the same person. Patrick’s in 10th grade now and has taken up running.
Anyways, had a great day shooting the Half Moon Bay Dream Machines show again yesterday (it’s the third year in a row that Scoble and I’ve shot it). So many great car photos to now be processed. Scoble left for Israel last night. It will be interesting to see what he gets over there.
