...keep on cropping up. This is turning into a meme for proof of concepts amongst the web services crowd.

This tool calculates similarities maps for different types of products, based on Amazon's database. So if you like a book or an authir, or a CD or a band, just feed it in, and get a graphical representation of what other, similar, items you might like.

Here's one I did earlier for Charlie's short story collection Toast.

Cool
Can I nick this article for DiverseBooks.com?

That's fun, I've been trying some of my favourite obscure bands in it. It makes me wonder how they generate the similarities information though - if it's based on tracking which things are bought by the same people, then for items that sell in lower volumes the data may be less significant statistically.
