This was 9 years ago... seems like yesterday :-) I wonder if anyone will guess all the names in this pic correctly?

I haven't been dancing in the Rain long enough to know who they are - but it's certainly a great looking group - !!

Well, let's see, I joined in June 2006 when there were just a couple hundred members or so.  Bob Stewart, you, Ginger Wilcox, and I recognize others but drawing a blank on the names at the moment.....

OK I give up. So who is everyone? I'm ashamed to say that having been a member since '08 and having actually visited AR headquarters in Seattle where I had the opportunity to meet the entire staff, the only faces that I recognized are indeed Brad Andersohn  Bob Stewart  and I think Kerrie La Guardia  albeit I don't recall her hair ever being that blond,

Brad Andersohn - I'm glad to meet you! Thanks for the humble beginnings and the role you played on ActiveRain. The only person I recognized was Bob's photo. That's a GREAT photo of innovative minds that were on top of the world back then and hopefully still soaring.

I wasn't around then. I know those were exciting times and wish I had been part of the early days when all was well in the Rain. I hear RainCamps were a blast.

Given none post here in months- years, nope. I miss the RainCamps.

Looks like you had fun back in the day, wish it were like that here now...ActiveRain.com is now LightDrizzle.com. It would be great to bring back that involvement and ENERGY OF LEADERSHIP. Auto-pilot is getting old ...as a 10 year vet here. Just remembering along with you.

I remember when I was at Zillow, Spencer (The CEO) asked me what we should do with ActiveRain when the acquisition is complete buying Trulia?

I suggested a "referral network" with Master Content Bloggers... he chuckled and smiled, then walked away.

The energy generated from this network back in the day is unparalleled.

There's always hope when it comes to rebuilding anything worthwhile...
