The service allows you to enter a word or phrase or explore a visual representation of a bookstore’s shelves. The notion of browsing in a book store is useful. The service runs on Amazon’s EC2 and S3 services. If you want to learn more about the company, write talk at zoomii.com. This is worth a look. I can think of applications in enterprise search where this approach would be appropriate and helpful. Too 20-something or useful to a person in assisted living? What do you think?
