Brad Inman’s Inman News is one of the go to resources for real estate news and information. His blog, newswire, wiki and other resources are essential. One of the things that Inman does better than most is getting people together (hint: connect).
I have been attending or participating as a speaker or moderator in the New York Inman Connect conference since they were initiated a few years back. I hadn’t made the trip to the west coast for the original conference but this year I decided to go. The San Francisco conference is August 1-3  and I am going (I’ll come up with any excuse to fly jetBlue .). Whats so great about Inman conferences  is that everyone is excited, there is so much useful information floating around and the participants are the decision-makers.
This year there is a really cool conference within a conference on blogging called, you guessed it, Blogger Connect , preceded by the Joe and Rudy’s Sellsius -fueled cross-country RV tour called, you guessed it, Blog Tour USA .
