Zillow co-founder to discuss 'the Next Big Thing'

Real Estate Connect Speaker Q&A: Rich Barton

Innovation is sometimes difficult to see coming. Ask newspaper executives about what happened to revenue from real estate classifieds when Realtor.com, Zillow and Trulia came along.

Barton has been on the front edge of innovation in real estate, travel and employment for the last two decades.
