I put in a few obscure artists and it identified the relationships I would expect.
The closer the artists are, musically speaking, the closer to each other they will be displayed on screen. You will be likely to appreciate artists close to the one you selected at first.
We already see them for Web sites (e.g. I like www.mysite.com, show me other sites i might like), and they exist for movies, music, and movies in some capacity, whether it be through Amazon-type 'people who bought this, also bought that' type services, or visual interfaces like musicplasma.
I guess it could work for other 'taste' type things like Web design, apparel, restaurants, etc., right?
I typed in an old band from the 70's and it brought up related bands and suprised me with what it found.
I was also tempted to buy a cd from a band I have not listened to for ages. Although this looks a bit like a graphical "toy" (not in a demeaning sense) it delivered what I wanted and put the right products in front of me.
You gotta tell man, so we have something to actually converse about instead of letting this thread get boring and transform into a "review" thread (you know, all people say is "I like it!" which gets pretty boring IMHO because it is already said about 100 times before) and I'm curious too :)
