I have been very impressed with this service and the quality of the individuals that it seems to attract. I think it has some selectivity and exclusivity which is a good thing when people you meet initially on the internet might end up living in your house! I have had great luck with foreign academics who seem to appreciate interacting with a colleague. These individuals have become professional friends. I also have worked with folks from UNC, USC and UC Irvine who come to Harvard for a year or a semester on a fellowship, visiting professorship or for a research position.
