I will be presenting at Curry Association Management’s Annual Meeting for their clients.
The meeting is on Monday, May 9th at 6pm at the Holiday Inn on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.
I have a short 10 minute presentation prepared where I’ll provide a quick overview of our services and some tips for generating participation on your neighborhood website. You can also meet with me after the presentation and I can answer any questions that you have in person!
If your HOA is managed by Curry, please be sure to attend, I would love the chance to meet with you.
If that’s not enough, we’re also giving away some gift certificates to Jack Stack BBQ to a few lucky winners.

YES! Google will build an ultra high-speed broadband network in Kansas City, Kansas. According to their FAQs, construction will begin at the end of 2011 and service may be available to some residents as early as the first quarter of 2012.
They received applications from 1,100 communities across the US, including a number of nominations from our own neighborhoods in KC.

Last June (2010) we launched a new money saving program for our Kansas City neighborhoods called eDeals. Through eDeals, neighbors agree to buy products and services in bulk allowing us to secure discounts from local merchants.
Since the beginning our goal has been to help residents save money on products and services, while at the same time, helping local merchants thrive.
I’m happy to report that we’ve already saved homeowners $188,101 and helped to generate $100,271 in revenue for local businesses.
To date, we’ve run 30 deals from local merchants such as:
- Sprinkler Blowout
- Lawn Fertilization
- Window Cleaning
- Furnace Tune-Up
- Dry Cleaning
- Tree Trimming
If you’re a Kansas City merchant interested in offering an eDeal to our neighborhoods, please visit http://www.eneighbors.com/edeals/.
Here are some examples of our deals:

I attended TEDx in Boulder Colorado tonight. Andrew Hyde and company put together an amazing list of 22 speakers that covered a wide range of talks from “What makes things funny?” to “The Value of Energy Efficiency”.
My favorite talk (and I think the crowd favorite) was Brad Feld’s talk on his “Quarterly Week Off the Grid” – a simple idea that he credits to saving his marriage where he and his wife completely disconnect from the world (no phone/no email/etc) and go on vacation. I brought my wife to the event and needless to say she was a huge fan of the concept. I also got a chance to introduce myself to Brad who is a super nice guy.
If you don’t know TED you should start watching the talks now. I watch two talks from TED every day over lunch. I find them incredibly valuable to opening my mind to new ideas and gaining exposure to areas that I otherwise would never have access to.
UPDATE: Photos of the event are now online.
UPDATE 2: Video of Brad’s talk is now online.
