shopping vicariously

Zappos has created a fun tool to watch shopping.

A real time animated map mashup that shows what people are buying at this very moment, and where they're from. Watch shoe trends break on the west coast or watch the east coast wake up in the morning and get to work get their shopping on.

This is a fantastic concept (inspired by Twittevision) and proof that it's possible to make your business as fun and exciting as your product. From MsHerr.

This is a great idea, but I think it would be even better if they added a chat functionality to it so that everyone watching the map at the same time could also talk about what was popping up on the screen. Build a bit of a community feel into the site, and the time spent staring at the map would go up ten-fold.
