Mapping Connections

June 2, 2008

Not perfect, but a worthy start. Try Literature-Map for some recommendaitons. The site is based on the ‘people who read this author also read’ concept that has worked so well for Amazon.

The imperfections here are based on data entry errors. Too many authors appear multiple times, with different spellings to their names. If that could be cleaned up the process would really sing. I have no idea on the data sources for this project, but it’s worth a look.

Beware, you may spend an hour or two surfing from author to author. Or even playing the Kevin Bacon game with an author you read, building a path to the other authors you read (I chose Tolkien).
