Matt Cohen has an excellent recap of the 1st day of the RESO meetings. You can check it out at:
I tried making a comment on his post but the captcha image seems not to be working so I’ll make it here.
I think Bob Bemis is correct in that if RESO, doesn’t deliver MLS providers will find another way.
But I disagree that it won’t be a vendor solution. Creating a standard where apps can be released nationwide thru multiple MLS providers at once is a huge incentive.
I’ve heard of several vendor iniatives towards this (a la an API) and I hope that some of these will be made more public at CMLS. [Crossing my fingers and toes!]
