internet: Vancouver Timelapse - 11/15/07 05:26 PM
Not exactly Victoria-related, but kind of about real estate! Too cool not to post on my blog! This was taken from the filmmaker’s Yaletown Condo. Vancouver Real Estate is all about condos downtown - wonder how much the view from this place costs!

internet: Hate Spam? Here's how Gmail can help a frustrated Realtor® - 11/02/07 12:41 AM
How much time do you spend on spam every day? As the resident geek in the office, I’m constantly asked by my fellow agents: “How can I get rid of all this junk e-mail?!” From shady business propositions to uhh… equipment enhancers, there is no shortage of spam out there. As REALTORS®, we want to promote ourselves as much as possible. This includes publishing our e-mail addresses in as many places as possible. It’s no surprise, then, that we get a large volume of unsolicited messages. Spammers use ‘crawlers’ or ‘robots’ - automated programs to crawl the web and harvest unsuspecting (2 comments)

internet: What is Web 2.0? [Video] - 09/25/07 12:51 PM
Furthering our discussion on Web 2.0, this short video helps explain a little more as to what the buzz-word is all about. Some of this may seem abstract, and the end of the video relates more to software and application developers, but the basic concept is good, and this video gives you a good idea on how the Web has changed and what is the future of the Internet. If Web 2.0 is engaging users (people), then it should not take too much of a semantic leap to make the connection to our profession. The bar has been raised as to (0 comments)
