Cool new toy...and maybe research tool??

I recently found an awesome online gadget I thought would be of interest to the HASTAC community. Many of you may know that if you click the first link (not including superscripts or parentheticals) in any Wikipedia article, and continue for several clicks, you will eventually end up at the Philosophy page. Well, someone has developed a tool to show how any number of topics of your choice all lead back to philosophy: http://www.xefer.com/wikipedia

As someone very interested in data visualization, I was really excited about this cool app. Play around with it and let me know what you think! I've been thinking for weeks now about how this could possibly be used in research or in the classroom....there has to be a way, somehow.
