Reverse engineering Netflix customized categories

I got this blog post from my colleague Eric Wolfe: "How Netflix Reverse Engineered Hollywood". A very comprehensive (and slightly tedious ) study of how to customized genres are created by Netflix.

A startup called Quantifind has taken this construction a step further, and now predicts a future success of a movie based on the customized genre.  I hear they are working with some of the largest studios.
