Music EcoSystem Launched

We formally launched Music EcoSystem yesterday. It's a site which shows the Data Mining technology I developed for creating relationships between music items based on a crawler that I build which scours the Gnutella P2P network finding what people are sharing.

Today I added a link from it to Apple's iTune Music Store so you can search for tracks you might like and buy them if you have OS X and iTunes 4 (and live in the US for the moment).

Playground Finder Flink Labs - Data Visualisation

About
neuronwave is the personal site of Ben Hosken. I am the founder of Flink Labs, a data visualisation studio based in Melbourne. Previously I founded AgentArts, where I developed a recommendations system that we ultimately sold to MSFT.I have two patents, one in Recommendation Systems and one for a datamining algorithm I invented. I have a strong interest in physical computing, emergence, self organising systems, immersive games, bluetooth ad hoc networks and other fun things.
A while ago I built and ran Blog Change Bot - an AOL IM Bot which notified you when blogs you like are updated. I also built IcyPole, a bluetooth based P2P mobile phone app in 2004. With Suzette, I've built Playground Finder - a community contributed site for parents to find playgrounds nearby and while traveling for their kids to play in. Its a "playground" for my social, location, community and mobile interests.
I live in Melbourne with my wife Suzette, son Oskar Tex and my little girl Jasmine
