Literature Map

Have any of you out there ever come across this site called Literature Map?  It’s really interesting, to me at least.  What you do is enter an author’s name, and the site provides you with a map of other authors who you may like based on your entry.  The farther away from the central author’s name, the further distance in similarity.  It seems like the map’s data is gathered from user input, connecting their likes and dislikes and compiling that data.  Not sure how accurately the map can report, because of that, but a neat idea.

Here’s the Literature Map with my name entered.
