As I am writing this post, I have my HP Mini 2140 charging up and downloading any updates that it may need in preparation for Real Estate BarCamp Indiana tomorrow. I also have my iPhone plugged into iTunes to see if there are any apps that I might need updated and/or downloaded in preparation to endure this day long event.
I have had many individuals ask why I would subject myself to waking up at 4 AM, CST to make the 2-1/2 hour drive from my home in Chesterton Indiana all the way to Indianapolis Indiana where the event is to take place. That's a good question.
"an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees."
Nobody is paid to speak and all of the events are coordinated by volunteers and paid by sponsors. It should be noted that this BarCamp is being hosted by not only the Indiana Assocation of REALTORS, but also the Indiana Commercial Board of REALTORS and will have Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels as a featured speaker.
Consequently, people gravitate for the purposes of sharing what really works and not just the theory of what should work. I was fortunate to witness one of the larger RE BarCamp events when it was hosted in Chicago by the National Association of Realtors.
This leads me to my second and primary purpose of attending this event. Since the original concept of this event evolved from a technology gathering, most of what is discussed is the proper methods to integrate technology into the human experience of real estate.
In other words, how can we enhance the law of attraction through all things digital. Want to know more? Come join us on Monday, January 25th, from 9 AM - 5 PM, EST. Can't make the event in person, follow the ongoing conversation on twitter.com with the search hash tag of #rebcin.
