Rich Barton's Exit Strategy?

Zillow’s CEO is starting a hedge fund along with two other Seattle entrepreneurs, says John Cook:

The partners in the fund, which is in the early stages of formation, are Zillow.com Chief Executive Rich Barton, Second Avenue Partners co-founder Nick Hanauer and Delafield Hambrecht Chief Executive J.D. Delafield.

What does this mean for Zillow? Is Barton looking to jump ship?

If I were his VC I wouldn’t be too happy that his attention is being diverted, especially considering its current troubles.
