Obviously all we think about, all we care about, here at the real estate desk is, well, real estate. Which is why one line in particular jumped out during the president’s speech at the Democratic National Convention last night.
Big news events like the Olympics and the Democratic National Convention usually spark new media technologies and breakthroughs.
