I love San Diego. I really hated to have to leave. Beautiful people, beautiful architecture, beautiful weather.
The weather people must have the most boring job in town – “fair and mild, fair and mild, fair and mild”
I didn’t get the final numbers but over 400 enthusiastic campers attended REBar Camp San Diego today.Â Lots of topics in venues filling the 3 floors of Stingaree.Â It was a chance to make new friends and re-connect with old ones, but, as usual, the biggest rush is making that first time face to face IRL contact with folks you know through social media.Â And the one-on-one interaction is really what it’s all about for me.
Here are just a few of the highlights in this Animoto:
I am heading for San Diego for the National Association of Realtors convention for the next few days.Â I hate packing for any kind of trip, but the final rush to pack the right clothes, the mandatory cool kid accessories (Moo and Moleskine), the various chargers, batteries, music, spare glasses, etc., etc., usually ends about 2 minutes before I have to get in the car for the airport.Â When I unpack at the destination there is always some critical item, like all my shirts, that has been forgotten.Â And, as if by divine design, my business always reaches it’s annual crescendo the day before I have to leave town.
Gonna see the folks I dig……

I am looking forward to meeting with some of the thought leaders of the real estate business and some great friends, viaÂ a real estate BarCamp, and various forums and presentations at the convention itself.Â But the best ideas are usually shared at tweet-ups, cocktail hour, and other informal settings.Â Some of those folks I only know through from social networking, but past experience tells me that it will be like old friends getting together.
