Research on combining open source "tag" (genre) metadata to inform musical artist recommendations

See this blog post

Uses the last.fm API to get a list of stranger-submitted tags, using jaccard's similarity index to quantify the similarity between each pair of 70 artists, and spits out artists.json. index.html then reads that json to construct a d3 visualization of the artist similarity network. The d3 visualization includes tooltips that give artist recommendations (the three most similar other artists).
