By the sound of things, it looks like the Rodawg is going to be taking up residence somewhere nearby. I've been following Rory's blog since before he joined Microsoft, and I think this team will be a good fit for him. The evangelism team definitely has some of the more interesting personalities working for it. (for a brief time, I shared an office wall with Laura and Tina. They're totally cool and were very gracious, even when goofy fanboys came around)
Rory and I will share the same grandboss.
As nice and well connected a guy that Scoble was, I think Rory will make for some interesting press on a regular basis.
Tell everybody on the team to be sure to shake his hand and give him a big long hug. :?)
