Overstock.com Joins the Mahout Parade

Interesting story here in Wired about how Overstock.com used Mahout to build and deploy a recommendation engine to replace RichRelevance, thereby saving $2 million in annual fees.

Overstock joins an elite list of companies who are monetizing Mahout. including  Adobe,  Amazon,  AOL,  Buzzlogic,  Foursquare,  Twitter and Yahoo.
