Sunday Morning Inspiration: Interview with AJ Leon

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I listened to the JoinUpDots interview with AJ Leon (Misfits) this morning: http://www.joinupdots.com/2014/11/21/207-aj-leon/ AJ has a well read blog, Pursuit of Everything, that I’ve been following for awhile (no surprise given he’s a slow moving world nomad as I am). His story is absolutely worth hearing. So, go listen… PS: The Misfits website is gorgeous.

Posted on by Drew Meyers

There are a lot of amazing companies that have gone through Start-Up Chile (some of which are real estate related). My favorite one? Bureo Skateboards Why? It’s certainly not because I’m the target demographic. I’ve never skateboarded in my life, and pretty sure I would kill myself if I tried. It’s because Bureo has an amazing story: Bureo designs and manufactures a unique line of sustainable skateboards. Bureo’s innovative boards are manufactured in Chile through the team’s initiative, ‘Net Positiva’, Chile’s first ever fishnet collection … Read More »

Posted on by Drew Meyers

Brand names are hard. As are great slogans. Guessing not many of you have heard the term “enallage” (I hadn’t). What does it mean? A slight deliberate grammatical mistake that makes a sentence stand out — and it makes a ton of sense when it comes to company slogans, something every founder and business owner should be thinking about. Along with alliteration, diacope, and chiasmus, it’s one of the tricks to memorable slogans. Go read the whole article at New York Times. via Alliteration, diacope, chiasmus. killer article.

Tipping Tuesday…with BitCoin

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I’ll follow Fred’s lead: Tipping Tuesday. I added a tip button from Coinbase to all posts here on Geek Estate, if you feel inclined to help keep the lights on. I included a Paypal donate button on this post earlier this year, and got one or two donations from it. We’ll see if a tip with bitcoin gets any better response. For those who want to add a tip button to your own site, you can do that here: https://www.coinbase.com/tip

Buyfolio-logo-300x231

I was bullish on AgentFolio in 2013. See this article for details. It was announced AgentFolio (formerly Buyfolio) is to be discontinued (via GeekWire). Was I wrong in my bullishness? Maybe, but I still think less is more when it comes to search — and buyfolio was onto something potentially big. I’m wondering if the product is truly being shuttered, or if components of it will resurface down the line as part of Zillow’s core search functionality? I suppose only time will tell. Anyone else have any thoughts … Read More »
