Hello Web 2.0 world!

Welcome to Real Estate 2.0. This is my first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!


I decided to start this blog today because I needed a place to vent.  I am the founder of a small (self-funded) internet real estate startup that does not utilize any of the retarded ajax or ruby on rails technology bullshit that we see oozing all over the web.

I am a strong believer in Web 1.0 – meaning a well built, w3c compliant, search engine friendly, lots of indexed (or index-able) pages, fast loading, old fashioned type website.  You know, the kind that does not have a tag cloud, a 36+ size font, and a google map-mashup on it’s homepage.

Although I will be focusing my energy on the Real Estate 2.0 crowd – I will most likely be biting the ankles of other web 2.0 companies (outside of the real estate industry) as well.

    Nah, the tech companies trying to sell to real estate agents, who are mostly clueless when it comes to the internet, have been annoucing that that the real estate web site is dead. I somewhat agree because there are zillions of worthless sites out there spewing useless content onto the web complete with pictures of really funny looking people.

    Blog on dude!

    And let’s go back to those really cool paper cups with string between them for our phone calls…

    Web 1.0- you mean those websites with homepages that look like you’re reading a novel and have tons of useless links and keywords that are repeated dozens of times so they will be indexed, right?

    Or maybe we could just run really fast and slam our heads straight into a brick wall to get the same effect.

    Oh, but they load fast? Right- like that three-second difference in load times causes such a strain on your day.

    Millions of real estate websites and maybe 20-30 are unique with any real innovation and THOSE are the ones to slam?

    I should have started reading the posts from the beginning. Me thinks you may be bitter about the fact that these companies which appear to be doing so little are getting tons of money thrown at them.

    It’s all about the golden parachute at the end of the day. They will collect their millions, oversee a failure and retire (or repeat the process since they are already cozy with the VC’s…I’ve never understood that dynamic).

    Meanwhile, you’ll spend the rest of your life working hard, wondering why you didn’t get the same break.

    The answer is simple: Rather than blogging, they’re out there building their companies. You may not see the benefit in doing it that way, but perhaps you’re not driven by greed. If you were, you’d be doing the exact same thing.

    Ah, capitalism, ain’t it grand? Well, it’s only grand if you’re on the right side of it — the one making money off of other people’s efforts.

    I will say, however, that I do enjoy your blog. Almost as much as I enjoy commenting! 😉

    The best of luck to you and your start-up! Kick some ass, take some names and report back in two years with a “I told ya so!” There is nothing as satisfying as seeing the underdog win!

    Great post, very interesting concept. You make a good point that all the factors need to come into play. Selecting a good property agent is most important for property management who helps you throughout the buying process and beyond to completion.

    How did this work out for you, i hope you did not sell out and start using stupid ajax. loading the entire page each time is a much better solution.
