The “Google removing Real Estate from the Map” has already happened. The audio and a written transcript is posted at Google Maps and Real Estate.
Today Google announced that they’ll be pulling real estate off of the Google Map. A number of things all sort of start to coincide with this–googlebase API disappearing, their CEO switching out, and so on. I figured I’d see if some of my friends wouldn’t mind having a live conversation about this topic.
Google takes real estate off the map
Date: Thursday, January 27, 2011
Time: 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM EST
Yesterday Google announced that they’re ending real estate on maps.
What does this mean for real estate technology?
A quasi-moderated conversation on the topic featuring:
- Rich Bailey of Wolf Net
- Gahlord Dewald of Thoughtfaucet
- Dustin Luther of 4Realz Consulting
- Mike Simonsen of Altos Research
What’s great about this crew of panelists is that everyone has some deep experience in a variety of aspects of real estate, data, marketing and technology. So we should be able to really poke at the issues around Google getting out of mapping real estate from a variety of angles.
We’ll talk for a bit and about what meaning this has, if any and maybe take a few questions. Gahlord will try to moderate.
