Congrats to Joel and Glenn. Joel certainly has a a keen insight into the future of real estate marketing. He is especially apt at identifying and dissecting the latest and greatest. Joel you will make a great VP Content.
I have had the pleasure of being interviewed and meeting Glenn over the course of the years. He is a super nice guy with a mild demeanor, but don’t let that fool you. Glenn does his homework and has a way of capturing the essence of the story and getting all the facts. Glenn you will make a great managing editor.

Every once in a while I have a random rambling thought. I think I will start publishing them, here is a recent one.
I have five children ranging in age from brand new to 17 so I have a lot of exposure to the young mind. The vivid conviction with which little kids hold their, dreams, hopes and desires is amazing. In their minds, they feel that when they grow up they can be or do anything. It is certainly sad to see those dreams fade and change, for some, as they grow up. Life, it seems, inexorably conspires to beat the little kid out of us with insidious persistence. Sadly for most, somewhere along the line the kid inside becomes silent. People become satisfied with the mediocrity of their station and call it reality. Fortunately dreams, like children, are resilient. I think that everyone has remnants deep inside of the kid they once were. Don’t let life beat the little kid out of you.
