Cool Music Artist Map

My friend and classmate Megan Shia pointed me to Music Plasma, which links musical artists together. This came out a while ago, so I'm probably behind the times once again.

One problem with this otherwise interesting information visualization: no key and no explanation. What do the links really mean? Or the distance between bubbles? Only thing I could find out about is that the size of the bubble represents how popular the artist is. But how is that determined? Album sales? Is this whole thing dynamic? Why is Norah Jones triple the size of R.E.M.?
