Discovering your own interests through others' interests

Thanks to pocket500 for this. There's no doubt that I am interested in most of these things, but some (e.g., music, books) strike me as too generic to list. Listing specific artists and writers makes more sense to me.

Still, interest matchers such as this are pretty clever, even though the cleverness is based on brute, blind, statistical comparisons. These algorithms sometimes show some startling connections in human brains, as fluke once remarked in a post to talk.bizzare, "Amazon knows me a little too well" http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=1e9cqqw.uyt7ty13dsla0N%25meta%40pobox.com&output=gplain
