    The Archipod — a totally slick idea! I want one!

  • Some choice words for real estate start-ups

    This interview by Global Property exchange with Simon Baker, who just so happens to be the CEO of News Corporation-owned REA Group, features a few choice quotes about web2.0 start-ups in the real estate space.

  • The 1st 4RealzEd event was yesterday and…

    I think I’ve recovered enough now to actually post about it! 🙂 Despite our best efforts to be prepared, the day started off a bit rough with a nearby mudslide taking out power in our building in the morning (meaning no hot coffee and no projector) and a 9-car pileup on a nearby freeway slowed […]
