A Zillow.com employee (that goes or went here) sent an e-mail to the CS list looking for employees. The site is kind of interesting: it shows estimates of home prices in the area of your choice. I looked up my family's house and learned some new information :). I also looked up some friend's houses just out of curiosity. It was interesting to move around the map and see the price gradients. The interface was a little quirky in Firefox (it didn't move as I expected... when I released the mouse button, the map still moved) and doesn't work in Safari yet (although, they do have a nice error message which informs me that they at least know about Safari, which earns them some props). It would be nice if they could speed up the rendering of the map with overlaid price information, however.
