Robert ScoblePopular blogger and WebProNews blog partner Robert Scoble is leaving Fast Company after about a year of video work at But what’s in the cards next for Scoble?

"I am visiting as many companies as I can as quickly as I can (yesterday I saw two more, today I’m visiting another three) so that I can get a good bead on what I should build next and also to get some ideas of where to take my blog," he says.

Scoble tells TechCrunch he’s almost ready to unveil a new project he’s working on, but on his blog he says he can’t talk about what he’s doing next because it’s not completely decided. He does say he wants to announce something at the SXSW conference.

"Scoble continues to be on the cutting edge of new Internet technologies, sometimes taking things to an extreme," says Michael Arrington at TechCrunch, who spoke with him. "He was once briefly banned from Facebook for violating their terms of use, and we’ve (only half jokingly) called for an intervention over his excessive use of services like Twitter and Friendfeed."

Scoble will still be writing a column for Fast Company, and I assume his blog Scobleizer will continue to keep the world informed of all things Scoble.
