I’m pretty excited about the opportunity, but three things occurred to me recently as I was thinking about this trip.
- I’m flying solo to the conference.
- I’ve never been to New York.
- I don’t know a soul east of the Rockies.
So, rather than rely on outdated travel guides or dig anonymously through message boards, I’ve decided to tap into the wisdom of the crowds and the generosity of the real estate blogosphere and “open source” my trip.
I’ve also been meaning to explore some of the hosted wiki solutions for a long time, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Using Wetpaint.com, I’ve created a publicly editable wiki for my NYC trip itinerary and I’m hoping you can all help me flesh it out.
It’s hosted at futureofrealestate.wetpaint.com. Check it out. Anyone can edit the page. Tell me where I should eat. Give me some suggestions on what I should see.
Some things that are finalized:
- I fly in Saturday morning, so the weekend before Inman is open
- I’m staying at the Marriott Marquis
- I plan on attending as many of the Inman events as possible
The rest – well, it’s open.
I’ve already had some requests to meet up and I definitely want to meet in person my fellow real estate bloggers or any representatives from the companies I write about (or should write about).
So if you’re a blogger, a Realtor or even a vendor and want to grab a bite to eat, go for a beer, catch a Rangers game, go shopping, heck even pick me up from the airport (I fly into JFK), throw your name down under one of the open days and let’s hook up.
For anyone else in a similar position as me, hopefully this page can serve as a way to get some group events planned.
