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

  1. Michael: I think you’re wrong. Real estate is an inherently social business. Google has left a wake of destruction on every social endeavor they’ve touched. I love your enthusiasm, but I disagree.
