One of the things I admire about Brad Inman  and his Inman News  is that the Real Estate Connect conferences  put people together that are empowered to make decisions. Its always a refreshing experience and I have found the conferences to be amazingly productive. I have been going to the New York version, but this year I am making the trip to San Francisco (and an excuse to fly jetBlue ).
Look for me as a panelist on Blogging Superstars  Thursday, August 2, 8:30 a.m. – 9:15 a.m with very accomplished panelists, none of whom I have ever met, but, oh yeah, I actually read and am a fan of their online efforts and link them to my site.

I am scheduled for the Meet the Leaders/ Meet the Companies program , where I get to stand at a table and hope people come up to me and ask me questions. I did that in New York last year and got to meet a lot of people one on one. A lot of fun. Thursday, August 2, 12:15 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
And lastly, I am moderating a panel of very smart people in the Innovation Tracks program on Thursday that runs on August 2, 2:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. My panel runs from 2:45 p.m. – 3:30 p.m and is called Data Mining: Information as Business Edge
