Forbes.com has a shameless linkbait piece, “The Web Celeb 25″ — here’s the TechMeme link if you haven’t seen it. Apparently, the editors of the piece adopted proofreading and fact checking practices typically assumed (in some cases unfairly) of bloggers, which is to say, not much — either that, or Scoble is now a political blogger:

Since Scoble started building his blog audience back in 2000, long before working for Microsoft, it would seem they have some facts wrong as to when “fame” actually struck Scoble — I’ve done just a bit of fact checking, but it seems enough to step over Forbes.com’s bar.
