I hope the blog post gives you some context about why we started Trulia and what we are trying to do. If there are any more thoughts or questions on the "why" then please post on the comments section and we'll work to answer them in future blog posts.
Your post helped. I Googled Pete Flint and found this:
Have things changed that much in a year and a half? It sure seems to me that Realt_r.com is a "Universal Multiple Listing." The spamming for Realt_r.com is one of the things that made me suspicious in the first place. And many big company websites such as WSJ seem to just piggy back onto that same information. I'm confused how this all works.
P.S. I hate typos. Some make you sound so ignorant as opposed to making a mistake. I wish we could preview answers or make corrections instead of deleting and reposting.
Congrats for the two years mark, many years to come and bigger birthday to celebrate. Give us a call when you go public :-)
Pete - You forgot to mention who is who in the picture below - of course, we all know which one is you!
