Inman ConnectTech 2011 – New York City

November 1, 2010

Once again, Inman Real Estate Connect will offer a special technical track called ConnectTech on the first morning of the conference.  And once again, I have been asked to moderate those sessions.  We’ve got the first draft of a loose agenda set up, but I wanted to reach out to my network to ask for input on topics and speakers.

If you or your company are doing interesting real estate technology projects, let me know and I’ll see if we can get you onto the speakers list.  We’re especially interested in the following topics:

  • HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript/jQuery
  • Death of Flash?
  • Building a successful web app
  • Social web
  • User Experience, User Interface, Design process
  • Geolocation
  • APIs
  • Real-time web

The format is typically 45 minutes with three speakers presenting on their project: goals, strategy, what worked, what didn’t, what you’d do different next time.  That’s followed by questions from me and the audience.

If you have something to contribute, let me know either in the comments or by e-mailing me directly.  Tell me which topic you’re currently working on and tell me something about the project, then I’ll let the right people at Inman know you are interested.

How to find articles you’ve e-mailed from Google Reader

June 22, 2010

I’m constantly reading articles in Google Reader – sometimes on my iPhone, sometimes on my laptop.  When I find an article I think someone else would like, I often use the “Email” link built into Reader at the bottom of the article.  This sends directly from Google’s system, so it does not end up in the “Sent Items” of your e-mail system.

Recently, someone asked me if I could find an article I sent them months ago.  There is no obvious way in Reader to do this, but I found this neat shortcut:

http://www.google.com/reader/view/user/-/state/com.google/tracking-emailed

If you don’t see anything right away, make sure you choose the “All items” link at the top – “New items” appears to be the default.

Inman ConnectTech 2010 – San Francisco

April 12, 2010

I’m happy to again be moderating the ConnectTech Workshop at Inman Connect in San Francisco July 13-15 this year.  We’ve got the agenda pretty much finalized and I want to reach out to the real estate tech community to find people working on related projects who would like to present.

We’re currently looking for insight from companies implementing projects in the following areas:

  • HTML5 Development
  • iPad Development
  • Android Mobile Development
  • Geolocation
  • Authentication using FriendConnect, Twitter OAuth, or Facebook Connect

The format is typically 45 minutes with three speakers presenting on their project: goal, strategy, what worked, what didn’t, what you’d do different next time.  That’s followed by questions from me and the audience.

If you have something to contribute, let me know either in the comments or by e-mailing me directly.  Tell me which topic you’re currently working on and tell me something about the project, then I’ll let the right people at Inman know you are interested.

You can see more about the Inman Connect Conference at http://www.realestateconnect.com.  This is always a great conference and the workshops are always enlightening.  Plan to join me July 13 from 8:30am to 12:30pm!

  • How Twitter Could Lose The Game By Design – Dembot
    Every time I use the Twitter.com site, I’m always amazed how poor the navigation is for such a simple – and popular – app.

  • Why I’m Done Making Desktop Applications – MicroISV on a Shoestring
    Very well written article on desktop apps vs. web apps from a developers perspective.  The advantages of web apps – usage analytics, a/b testing, lower support requirements, frequent updates, dynamic languages – are so strong now that this is becoming a permanent shift for many.

  • At Last! Redfin Releases Its iPhone App! – Redfin Corporate Blog
    At long last, Redfin has an iPhone application. And it is gorgeous and fast and free and freakishly powerful.

    Congratulations to Matt, Sasha, and the gang on a job well done!

  • ★ So Dan Lyons Called – Daring Fireball
    And he’s all, “I guess you saw that ‘Dear Gruber: You’ve Been Pwned’ thing I wrote last week over at Fake Steve. Haven’t seen a link to it from Daring Fireball, so just checking to make sure you’re cool with that.”

    Genius response from Gruber.
