Found: New Ally For Vets Concerns: Craig of CraigsList

Market Street in San Francisco

Market Street in San Francisco

It’s great when you meet people of kindred spirit in places you weren’t expecting.  I attended the Inman Connect Conference in San Francisco last week expecting to meet a lot of geeks, programers, and architects of Web 2.0. and the Social Media explosion.   Which I did.

But perhaps my most valuable contact was Craig Newmark, founder of CraigsList. I was happy to learn of his concern for Veterans.   His reach of course, is greater than this humble blog, but his heart and approach is the same as here at GreenEarthEquities — to give our gifts away for free for good causes.  I look forward to contacting him in the next few weeks about some new Vets niche market ideas.

The conference was all about where Real Estate and Technology Connect.  With over 100 presenters and almost 2000 attendees, it was a GeekFest for sure.  Lot’s of new technology which will be showing up here in weeks to come.

Two Teams of programer-developers actually built full-blown applications in two days of the conference.   Coffee and Red Bull was unlimited, as the teams worked around the clock, and the crowd was amazed at the final product delivered on the last day.

There were tons of great Tech Sites presented, but here’s just one to bookmark. (More later.)   MyTechOpinion is all about technology for Real Estate Investors, and Realtors.  It is run by Nichole and Reggie Nicolay, a husband and wife team and has lot’s of great content.  One resource to check out is the “Tweet Plan 2.0” where Nichole likens sending out regular bits of information to your network to Drip Irrigation.   Here’s the HomePage:

Inman Connect is the twice a year conference and Inman News is the daily e-news which is all about Real Estate and Technology.   Like most e Journalism these days, the entry level subscription is free.  I think the premium service is worth the cost for serious investors.
