Looking at new contact photos on Flickr this morning there were a load of new pictures on Robert Scoble’s stream heralding the arrival of Robert and Maryam’s new baby earlier today. We’d just like to say a big congratulations on the new arrival.
I’d heard a rumour that Scoble had managed to get Sarah on video whilst he was over in the UK a few weeks back, and here’s the proof – twice! The first video starts off with Hugh MacLeod giving an interesting tour of the various tailors in Savile Row. The second part of the video is initially an interview with Scoble talking to Hugh during a taxi ride about his marketing and blogging, but then Sarah chips in and gets interviewed about why she started the Girl Geek Dinners too. The second video is a proper interview conducted by Maryam Scoble – with a guest appearance from Hugh MacLeod to balance things out.
If, like us, going in to London on a weeknight doesn’t exactly appeal, you can get a bit of the Geek Dinner experience from last night thanks to Ian Forrester of Cubicgarden. Although it surprised some people, this being a Girl Geek Dinner, the invited Scoble speaker was Maryam rather than Robert – Robert being off camera with a beer. You also get a guest appearance from Barry embarrassing Sarah with a birthday cake.
The Scobles are in town until Saturday, and are going on a Geek pub crawl with Hugh tomorrow afternoon. It will be interesting to try and spot those who joined them on Saturday at the Developer Day! If that isn’t enough, then there is a Geek Dinner on Saturday night too.
Anyway, here is Maryam Scoble talking about how she got into blogging:
