Breaking news but what does it mean to RealTown or RISMedia? What does it mean to people on RealTalk? What does it mean to people with RealTown Blogs?
"InternetCrusade® and RISMedia have announced a new partnership in RealTown, a trademarked Nevada corporation that owns and operates the RealTown.com real estate web portal. The alliance between the companies fuses the resources of two real estate-industry powerhouses to develop a social network for real estate professionals and consumers that is rich with content and tools."
Congratulations to Internet Crusade / RealTown, Saul Klein, John Reilly, Mike Barnett, Rich Hudson, Frances Flynn Thorsen. A lot of members on ActiveRain are or were members of RealTalk or ePROTalk and some of us have RealTown Blogs or had them...my RealTown blog is Discover Columbus
I have been following a dialogue between Dustin Luther and Frances Flynn Thorsen, two people who influenced me when I started blogging.
Their dialogue started out about Saul Klein of Internet Crusade / RealTown being named CEO of Point2 in December. Dustin's opinion is IC Internet Crusade / RealTown is NOT cutting edge technology, Francis disagreed with Dustin's opinions. Defensive of RealTown, the Realtown Blogs? Of course Frances as a big cheese at RealTown. I can't remember Frances' title... but Dustin got it wrong and then corrected it... in his response to Frances response to Dustin's opinions...
What do you think RISMedia being involved with the RealTown.com real estate portal will do for it? Or for RISMedia? I have compared ActiveRain to RealTown a time or two (I think it drives Frances crazy..) she is a member of ActiveRain. She's said they are not the same thing. They aren't... but I can still compare them...
