I created my first Greasemonkey script yesterday, to ease my wife’s Redfin addiction. The idea was simple: map restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, etc near each house.
It was fun, and it’s a great reminder that, unlike TV, a website is the product of a shared computation between the server and the client. Redfin can send me whatever it wants, but ultimately, I decide how to display it. Not a new idea, but it’s nice to finally be a part of it.
