Data Finds a Place on the Grid – Computerworld

Musicplasma : The Music Visual Search Engine

Beethoven is a relatively minor musician similar in style to Randy Newman. Don’t argue with me, I’m just relating what Musicplasma suggested.

You enter the name of an artist to search for, and you get back a cluster map of related artists. It’s cool.

I liked this exchange in a Usenet thread:

>>>Explore Your Music Tastes
>>>http://www.musicplasma.com/

>>Awesome! 10q!

>I thought so too………
>Im still playing it.

Imagine having fun using a search engine!
