Re: 'Innovation explodes across real estate industry ' (Dec. 9) Dear Editor: The article misses a major piece of the interrelationship of real estate, technology and the Internet... Because of technology, in many fields, I can now live where I want versus near work. One's place of employment does not necessarily dictate where one has to live. With telecommuting it is just as easy to live across the country. I no longer have to be in (or move to) a location because of my position. Technology not only makes my search easier, in many cases, it allows freedom of location. Todd T CostiganCenter for Real Estate TechnologyNational Association of Realtors *** What's your opinion?
