From NfX:

I need a place to collect and share notes.

This will be it.

I go through a tremendous amount of information in a given week and not all of it sticks.

A friend of mine said “Wealth isn’t about the money you make. It’s about the money you keep.”

I think knowledge is the same way.

Doesn’t matter how much info I consume if I don’t retain any of it.

If you consider the 80s and 90s to be the first wave of property technology, we can call that PropTech 1.0. CoStar (‘87), Argus (‘85), Yardi (‘82), RealPage (‘98), even Excel (‘85). All of these software platforms were created in the 80s/90s and grew to dominance in the commercial real estate industry…
