I was thinking again about how readers might find the e-authors that they will love. To help lead them from one author to another, I was wondering if there is any way to use a web-based image similar to your reading map concept Cornflower?

If there was a big enough data sample, it might be possible to identify possible 'trails'. For example maybe a high proportion of readers who like Peter May, also like Linda Gillard. And negative associations could be represented by road blocks!


Brilliant idea, Sandy!

Possibly Parellel Coordinates might be quite a simple graphical way to illustrate this for a small number (tens) of authors. I'll give this some thought, but for more than a few authors you will need a very large sample of contributors to see any significance.


Yes DP - I wasn't thinking of it as something for the site here - more a centralised marketing idea for the equivalent of iTunes

Ah I see, thank you for the clarification. I will now stop thinking!
