We are very excited and grateful at Newdigs to have been featured on WXXI’s Innovation Trail, which highlights the budding start up economy in their ‘Company Town’ series. Zack Seward sat down with Ben & Daniel at Newdigs HQ, and talked about Newdigs’ aspirations for the coming months and years. We can’t say enough how jazzed we are to be a part of this movement in our community towards starting businesses and identifying viable products to solve market problems.
We’d really like to hear back from Rochester (and the rest of NY) about your ideas and wishes for apartment search. We’re listening!
Updated! – we’ve put out a big code update. It fixes a majority of the issues on this list, and though there are a couple problems still nagging us (photo upload for listings!), a majority of things are working!
As you might’ve noticed, we’ve had a bit of a facelift at Newdigs.com. We’ve been hard at work trying to make the site better reflect a bit of our flair, and I think we’ve got it! That said, you’ll notice a lot of little snags, and a couple of really big ones. Here’s a not-so-conclusive list that I’ll be editing throughout the period of our update, until they’re all gone:
- Editing properties
/ listings is broken. This should be fixed this weekend.
The option to create an account has been removed, and won’t go back up until the listings thing is fixed.
Toggling advanced search options won’t modify your search results.
Flagging listings (for content, whether questionable or awesome) is broken.
Those are the big issues and they’ll be fixed as soon as we possibly can, from top to bottom. If you spot any other issues, please feel free to drop us a note using the little “chat” icon nestled on the right side of your page.
- Looking forward to hearing from you all!
We’re excited to participate in Imagine RIT, RIT’s festival of Innovation and Creativity, for the third year in a row! This year, we’ll be in the Gordon Field House with our peers at Venture Creations business incubator.
If you get to our booth quick enough, you’ll be able to get your hands on the first ever Newdigs Rochester Rental Market Guide! This is a very exclusive sneak preview of the guide, which won’t be seen by the rest of the city until Friday, May 13th, when our distributor drops them off to hundreds of area coffee shops, laundromats, and college campuses.
Please be sure to tweet to us (@newdigs) when you stop by our booth, so we can feel the love!
The Newdigs crew will be at the Rochester Housing Council’s Landlord Expo at MCC today!
We’ll be handing out several hundred copies of our new Rochester Rental Market Guide in advance of their distribution next week! Come to MCC between 10am & 4PM to get your hands on a copy!
Like much of the rest of the nation, Rochester is seeing a resurgence of young tech-savvy renters repopulating its urban core. Looking around the South Wedge, I wonder what skinny jeans would look like without an iPhone precariously dangling from the back pocket. One of the most interesting subcultures in Rochester is the technology community, who have embraced these lean times, and continued to evolve a myriad of technology events to bring Rochester’s digital community together in a more tangible way. Whether you’re new to the area, a university student passing through, or a long-time resident looking to expand your digital horizons, here is a look at this past year’s numerous tech events, by our new technology events correspondent, Dan Schneiderman. May you enjoy many more in the coming year.
