I’m downright excited about 2008! And one final link for the year: check out Jon Washburn’s predictions for 2008. It’s a great read!
…I would concur that realtor.com might dominate real estate search in 2008. But dominate is WAY too strong of a word because no one dominates real estate search today.

…I believe him on two accounts: He resigned (was not fired). He is working on something interesting. I won’t say (even if I knew) what he is up to but would be fascinated to hear some speculation on what the Point2 team members who left should build. Is there any empty space left to build [...]
