“Your Shopping Cart lives to serve. Give it purpose--fill it with books, CDs, DVDs, toys, electronics, and more.”

Starting with adding the first product ever sold on Amazon, Douglas Hofstadter's Fluid Concepts & Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought, to our shopping cart, we created a script that automatically added the next recommended item through Amazon’s “Other People Also Bought” algorithm to the same cart. The script started as soon as someone was watching otherpeoplealsobought.
