A event reccommender system (initial for sxsw but portable to other events)
idea: identify musical talent events at south by south west that might fit a description or be similar in style to well known bands across all genres

3rd parties Leveraged:

  • LastFm
  • Twitter
  • Foursquare
  • sched.com for scheduling info

sxsw kindalike the beatles

  • band abc
  • band dba
  • singer xyz

sxsw kindalike metallica tonight
* gives results for events that might match that night

sxsw kindalike Al Jarreau cool now
* gives results that might be similar to Al Jarreau
* narrows results to (hot/cool) based on recent geo activity via twitter and 4square

Yes its a rush job but I think it could be a mutually beneficial project for DDG and any of the active devs interested
Will start with enough interest from core DDG

@3pence is this still something you'd like to build? If so please go ahead and do so. If not that's alright, I will post this on the the Ideas forum (https://duck.co/ideas) for someone else to pickup.

@moollaza probably better to be in the ideas forum. Thanks, @3pence!
