Niall Kennedy has been working out of the Obvious office, part time, for a few months.

Apparently, besides blogging a lot and answering questions we have with his encyclopedic knowledge, he's been building a useful web app I'm sure to be addicted to: StartupSearch is an aggregator of information about web products, companies, and people. Among other things, it triangulates traffic data from various sources (Alexa, Compete, Quantcast) and calculates a (hopefully, more accurate) index.
