Time Magazine Just Named YOU Person of the Year

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Retired Associate RE Broker

  

 

I don't know if everyone realizes how big this is!   Congratulations Everyone At Active Rain that has been writing content for the web!  More importantly, Matt, Caleb and Ben for creating this platform for us to be part of the biggest story of 2006 -- Web 2.0.  YouTube, Blogging are just some aspects of this phenomenon.

Active Rain is a pioneer in this whole new world, and each member of this community is on the cutting edge of technology.  Read more about it at Time Magazine Cover Article.

Reading through the magazine, a short piece from Steve Johnson "It's About Us" struck me as how we will benefit from this technology.  How as Realtors we now have a method to share our knowledge and that  "Every successful neighborhood has always had its mavens and connectors, the true experts of the sidewalk, the playground and the backyard barbecue. But that local knowledge has been limited historically to the personal contact of word-of-mouth. Now, on the Web, it has a megaphone. "

 

Everyone -- Take a moment and think about it...  The biggest media giant in the world just put a giant GOLD star on what we are doing!

While I wrote this two others posted about it!  Brad Nix and Tony Arko, Oh and now that I scroll through the posts I found that Linda Davis wrote about it last night!  Congratulations!

Hey Colleen - thanks for sharing this story - Sometimes I think if someone didn't blog about it on AR I'd have no idea what is going on in the world at large.
