Scobleizer: Technology, innovation, and geek enthusiasm » Blog Archive Robert and Rocky ride again at Rackspace «.

Add all these things up and they got me excited about doing something new.

That new thing is called Building 43.

Why “Building 43?” Well, if you visit Google’s campus, you’ll see that the building that houses their “master plan” is Building 43 (several of its founders sit in building 43 there too). Microsoft has a building 43, too, which is where many of the developers on Windows and other things sit. I always thought that was funny that both companies had a building 43. When I asked friendfeed and Twitter for interesting building 43 stories,   I learned that Google’s numbering system predates it back to when SGI had its headquarters there.

TechCrunch was first to break the story as usual:  Scoble’s New Thing: Building 43.

Robert is discussing this right this second on Gillmor Gang broadcast live on TWiT Live.

Here is one of Steve Jurvetson’s photos of the Google Master Plan referred to in Robert’s post.

I totally messed up commenting on Scobleizer today:

It’s 5:08 a.m. and I haven’t gotten much sleep, but that’s cause I’m creatively alive. Last night I hung out with a ton of smart people at David Allen’s Getting Things Done Summit and came home and just wanted to do a lot of things. Got a bunch of photos up. Uploaded a video, working on others. Even got in the mood to blog again. I know, I know, it’s been a while.robertscoble, Scobleizer: Technology, innovation, and geek enthusiasm » Blog Archive What is going on in my life? «, Mar 2009

Anyhoo, I’m sure I look like a spammer… new blog, email address, and to top it off, wasn’t part of the new scobliezer community. Doh! Anyway thanks Robert for your advice, and I can’t wait to hear what plans you have for the future. Meanwhile, I’m also enjoying blogging for the first time in awhile. I didn’t think the world needed another tech blog, but you prodded me enough to actually do something I hope will be useful. Now I’m looking forward to bothering old associates and making them talk about themselves for the benefit of my readers!
