Microsoft Hires Jon Udell For “Scoble-like” Evangelism

Microsoft may have found its big public voice to fill the void left when Scoble fled the company for the big startup dream: Jon Udell. Jon is well-known from his work for Infoworld, and his stuff is sometimes the only thing I read in the whole magazine, and he will now be doing evangelism, with possibly some stuff at Channels 9 and/or 10. Jon’s InfoWorld blog was the 1,347th on Technorati, and his new blog (which may be here), if he grabs the torch and responsibility as Scoble did, is guaranteed to get some big numbers and notice. Jon, the focus is on you, and good luck.
