Waiting for Mini's Take on Scoble Leaving Microsoft

I stopped by Mini-Microsoft this morning to see if Who da'Punk (Mini), the anonymous proprietor of the popular blog, had put up a post about Microsoft Technical Evangelist Robert Scoble's decision to leave Microsoft and work for Podtech.net, in California. Nothing yet.
 
Mini and Scoble are perhaps the most popular bloggers at Microsoft. They certainly are the most well-known Microsoft bloggers outside the company.
 
Mini, who has been a thorn in Microsoft side for two years, with posts such as "Vista 2007. Fire the leadership now! " and "Microsoft Campus Expansion... foo! ", has stopped his severe criticism of the company. He was getting sloppy and it would have been just a matter of time before he was outed. It's like being an undercover cop or spook. Pretty soon you'll make a mistake that could cost you your life. In this case, it's would be a job and perhaps friendships and family disruption.
 
See Mini's "All Good Things..." and Seattle Times Reporter Danny Westneat's "Microsoft's mystery insider."
