The private side of RIN was referred to as the RIN Network Desktop (RND). It was a proprietary, business network. The WWW was considered too unsecure for the eventual vision of RIN, which included online customer communication and transactions. The RND was a basic “Dashboard” in today’s jargon. RealTalk was the first nationwide effort to create an online community in real estate. The remnants of the original RealTalk exist today. The button labeled HomePage takes you out of the proprietary network and out to the Internet..and the public side of RIN…Realtor.Com.
