UPDATE: I decided to do pics in the comments. If anyone has any pics they want to upload to share......feel free!
Ok! Here's the down and dirty on all the AR & Blogosphere celebs:
1. Mary Pope!!!
She won! We love, love, love her. Such a truly nice person--it is almost scary. Thanks for the tour of SF. I tip my hat to you (and your ghosts).
I met her on a street corner. So nice and charming. Warm and she has a little sexy spark to her. Looks better in person than her pic. Tisza has a pic of us meeting from the first moment. Good thru and thru. Love this woman.
Well-spoken, educated guy. Nice teeth. Great guy, we bonded. Did you see the nice thing he said about my week 3 post! I can't wait to see the apprentice wrap-up video on the Rain.
4. Matt Heaton:
Very genuine guy. Kinda quiet. Seems like he likes to be out of the spotlight.
Looks exactly like his pic. Perfectly polite and good people.
Just like her writings. Boy, this girl can talk! Wait to you see the interview. Very into it. Lots of great, great pics. Thanks for the prompt pick-up in the Prius. Much love, girl.
Nice guy and bouding with energy. Refreshing. Looks like his pic.
Better looking than his pic. Nice, nice guy. Took a dorky pic at the awards---I'll live with it!
9. Laurie Manny
Love the b*tch. Silent and deadly. Don't scr*w with her. I have pics of her walking barefoot in the streets of SF---I'm not afraid to post them when I get back to Miami---! Seriously, she has nothing but luv to give.
10. Noah Rosenblatt
What a player! I was at a panel he was speaking on. Very, very impressed with him. Learned from him. Looks better in person.
11 & 12--Joe & Rudy
Good time guys! I like that about them. They don't take themselves so seriously---which is great. Great info.
We had fun in the van from Zillow party to the Trulia party.
13. Jim Cronin.
Real commanding in person.
14. Teresa Boardman
Great hair. Well spoken. Pretty.
15. Genea from Sacramento (pronounced Gina):
So nice to me. I just met her. Well-respected.
16. Sharon Simms
So willing to help. LOOKS better than her pic. Sharon GET A NEW PIC.
17. Brian Brady
Sharp guy--impressive. Suspenders.
18. Dan Green
Sharp and honest. Kinda reminds me of me. No surprise that I like his style. I just learned of him today. Just subscribed to his feed.
19 Drew from Zillow
Nice. Knows his stuff. Quiet. Looks just like his pic.
20. Frances Flynn Thorsen
The other-half of the winning team. I wanted to hate her (it's my style) but I can't.
Real quiet guy. Sophisticated, smart & I like him; we'd get along--exact opposites.
Didn't get to meet him. Not in SF. My loss.
Adam Koval: Socketsite
Wow. Heavy hitter. Integrity. He's on my "list".
Well-spoken. Kevin: YOU WERE A GREAT MODERATOR. I love how you "shusshed"' the panelists into the mic. I can do a perfect imitation of the "shussh"
YOUNG. Knows his sh*t. Great moderator.
Miss Editor Jessica Swesey
Little sex pot.
It's weird because she doesn't "look" like the type of gal who would be into "geeky" type stuff. Great, great info. She's on my feed now.
Anil Dash-(Six Apart)
Never heard of him before. Wow-very intelligent guy. The kind of intelligence that is intimidating.
She makes the list because she thinks I'm good-looking. I'm a simple guy--that's enough for me!
OK--So I'm from the east coast so we don't have the REDFIN drama. We don't know of Redfin or their business model. So my next dish is on Glenn Kelman.
Smart guy. He was a bit nervous at the beginning of his KEYNOTE SPEECH. He got his groove on AND gave incredible information; quite possibly some of the best info of Bloggers Connect. Why am I supposed to not like Redfin? Subscribed to his feed.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention Marc Davison. He was one of the judges who took a lot of heat (especially from me but form the other apprentices as well). He is a great, great guy. Remember he was the one who likened me to Paris Hilton? Thank god it wasn't Lindsay Lohan! What a sharp guy. We met. In his picture that I once saw somewhere he looked crazy like that mug shot of that drunk actor (not Mel Gibson)...But, anyway, he looks much better in person than his pic. Marc----get a new pic. I send you the $100 bucks---that is something Paris Hilton would consider VERY IMPORTANT.
DICEY PICS TO COME.
