11/15/18: Watch uLab LIVESTREAM, continue momentum post #NARinBos18
UPDATE: Livestream only working on
Greetings, fellow real estate innovators!
It's been nearly two weeks since thought leaders gathered at the #BosRETech MeetUp and Travis Wright has asked me to share his slides (see attachment below).
Several people including Sharon Gorrell have asked for an update on continuing the discussion, perhaps during MIT's IAP (Interterm Activity Period) in January. While plans for 2019 come together, here's a suggestion. MIT offers a MOOC -- Massive Open Online Course -- called uLab that we can use as a framework to act on "what wants doing" in the future (see image below).
Translation? If insights from Travis's presentation on real estate platforms, Mark Lesswing's on markets for real estate data, Dazza's on digital identity, or Thomas's on information fiduciaries are echoing, and you want to translate some of your ideas into prototypes recommend watching uLab's 3rd LIVESTREAM.
uLab is a self-paced course, so it's NOT important to do anything in real-time, or to attempt to do everything. If you can watch for an hour today at 10am, good. If not, you can watch on demand or we can find a time to watch together. The important thing is to watch and then act, to keep momentum from #NARinBos18 moving forward. To encourage you to develop YOUR ideas, participants in uLab self-organize into supportive coaching circles.
That's #RE2020 role, and if others are interested, we'll explore making an application to be part of uLab's bold new initiative -- S.Lab.
More on that, and how to slip into the uLab process at whatever level you'd like to participate. Many people simply watch the four live lectures. The next is at 10am today. ENJOY whether you watch in real time or on demand.
