Come listen to Jon and me pontificate. Happening Now!! - 01/31/08 10:59 AM
Well not really. (I couldn't even give you the definition of 'pontificate' other than I know I will be running my mouth a lot) Jon will certainly be pontificating.......I'll probably just be talking :) Nonetheless, you are invited to listen in on an interview we are doing tomorrow in the HouseValues Mastermind Forum. In addition to listening to us talk (remember, Jon will be pontificating, I will be talking) about the background of ActiveRain and some of the reasons we believe our members participate, you will also have a chance to participate in a question and answer session at the end of (57 comments)
Dear DuoFold......help me love you MORE!! (or I may have to love someone else) - 01/30/08 03:28 AM
I love my DuoFold thermal undershirt. I swear by the thing. Being a Seahawk's season ticket holder, I can count on at least 8 days a year that I will no doubt be wearing my DuoFold. (I wear it a heck of a lot more than that, but 8 FOR SURE!!) As the wind and the rain converge on Occidental Avenue (the home of our great tailgate party, see picture to right) I continually orate the benefits of my DuoFold to any poor shivering soul within earshot. Dare not shiver by me or be sucked into a conversation about how warm (42 comments)
I have a problem with something.......... - 01/23/08 01:58 PM
..........My own voice. Not a problem with hearing it when I speak, I'm very comfortable with that..........it's hearing my own voice after it has been recorded and I am listening to it being played back to me. Something about listening to my own voice on a recording that kind of gives me the shivers. Is it because I use the "umm" a little too often? Maybe. I've been working on that. Now instead of "umm" I'm trying to go for the pause (as "ummm" is really just a way to collect your thoughts) for effect :) Maybe it's because I can (40 comments)
What did I learn at Inman? - 01/15/08 01:23 AM
I learned that if you miss it again, you are crazy!!! I repeat..........If you miss the next Inman in July in San Francisco (or if that's too far and you miss the one a year from now in New York) you are crazy!! We (the guys here at AR) are in a lot of ways on the cutting edge of what's in the real estate technology space. Mainly because Jon and Matt make sure the rest of us in the office are up to speed. I've had a twitter account for a long time (well a long time in Twitter years anyways, (63 comments)
Da Plane.......Da Plane........ - 01/10/08 01:52 AM
Being on a Plane next to Matt is great!!In Jon’s post welcoming Rich to the fold, he mentioned that we are hoping to attend more functions across the country in the coming year. After sitting next to Matt while flying across the country for the Real Estate Connect conference, I have to say, I could not agree more. Here’s why........On the airplane, we had no access to the internet. So I basically had Matt next to me captive, with his computer, but no internet access. Guess what programming guys keep on their computers that doesn’t require the internet...............yep, you guessed it......their (42 comments)
My apologies to Tom Plant. This list is WAY overdue. We are having an ActiveRain gathering in NYC during the Real Estate Connect Conference presented by Inman News. The gathering will be on Wednesday January 9th from 7-9pm in the lobby at the Paramount Hotel in Time Square. Any time we get a chance to get out and meet some of our members, we are thrilled. So in recognition of the get together being in the home of the real Top 10 List, and because Jon thinks they are a good idea, here goes............ Top Ten reasons you should join us at (72 comments)
One for the MeMe, Two for the show, three to get ready,now go Bob go............ - 01/08/08 01:11 AM
I got hit twice in the last seven days. First this beautiful lady got me, then this clown...........so to you, my lucky reader, you get ten things about MeMe.........hahaha, kidding of course. It's been seven days and I can't think of five things.....so if I were to do ten I would have to copy and paste from this post, then I'd have to splat myself for copying and pasting from somewhere else, which would result in me sending a condescending email to ActiveRain asking who had the gumption to take away my points and "how dare they". At this point I (44 comments)
You are what you write.......... - 01/02/08 06:09 PM
(So Jon has thrown down the gauntlet. As a result, you're going to get a lot more of my random musings in the coming months. For better or worse, many of my topics will no doubt be derived from the many contact activerain messages we get on a daily basis. I really should have been doing this more in the past, but Jon found a clever way of extracting it from me, and so here goes.......) "I have noticed that several people are using profanity in their posts. They're NOT spelling out the word, but we all know what they're saying; i.e., (53 comments)
Jon's thrown down the Gauntlet - 01/02/08 03:10 AM
The other day Jon came in to my office and informed me of a contest he and Matt are planning. Jon is always scheming up some kind of contest. Usually he is trying to dupe me into a % of weight loss, or % of muscle mass gained contest. Something weird like that. So when he strolled in on Monday, and annouced that he and Matt were having a contest, I expected something similar. But Alas, not the case. No, this contest is much more devious. A shot across the bow of the USS Heaton and the USS Stewart, if you will. (57 comments)
