Now, the military will be allowed to abduct and detain people indefinitely and likely, in FEMA camps. Prisons/jails require some semblance of due process and justice. NDAA 'arrests' do not. It will only get worse.

Now, your art can be picked for you, too!
WIRED originally shared:
 
When Pandora radio launched in 2005, listeners heard the result of the Music Genome Project that founder Tim Westergren had been working on for the previous 5 years (http://bit.ly/tLUXx8).

At the time, Westergren’s Music Genome Project may have seemed like a far-fetched idea: he planned to break millions of songs into 400 fundamental components, and make music recommendations to users that fit a similar profile to their favorites.

All the user had to do was enter a band or song they liked; Pandora would then create a custom radio station that featured a mix of songs, some that they had heard before as well as other new music that was similar in structure to some of their favorite bands.

In the December issue of WIRED, there’s a story about another project, Art.sy, which has built an Art Genome Project, if you will. Similar in concept to Pandora, founder Carter Cleveland has created a system that breaks artworks down into 500 components, and makes recommendations on other paintings based on the underlying similarities.

But Art.sy is different from Pandora in many ways. Whereas the average consumer has always been able to buy the music they want – say for $0.99 in the iTunes store – they haven’t been able to readily purchase works of art.

Many art dealers and middlemen will only work with the most prestigious clients, those willing to pay the ten thousand dollar price tags hanging on high-end paintings. That leaves very little room for the average consumer to find a canvas painting to hang in their living room for $1000 dollars.

But Cleveland is breaking those barriers. Consumers may not want to purchase a Picasso, but they might be interested in a budding artist with a similar style to the master. Art.sy can make those types of connections, creating a win-win for the artist and the buyer.

Read on to see how Cleveland has secured funding for his idea for some of the most well-known web investors: http://bit.ly/vsUaMm
