NetFlix contest

NetFlix is launching a contest to help improve their recommendation engine. How cool is that? Cool to the tune of $1 million?
Librarians, engineers, OCLC Researchers--here's a fun dataset to play around with and learn a thing or two about how recommendations/Long Tail/Pandora-type things might work. (Of course, there's nothing yet on their site about it...)
