About the Discussion

In the 1984 cult classic, “Repo Man,” the heroine Olivia Barash asks of hero Emilio Estevez, “What about our relationship?!” His response is not very romantic. Serious DM Radio fans know that our intro and outro music comes from the “Repo Man” soundtrack, specifically, Reel 10 by “The Plugz.” What brought all those great actors together? Probably karma, but these days, it could happen via graph technology. The powerful relationship-finding software uses nodes and edges to identify important relationships, like who knows whom, and where the key influencers are. “It’s all part of the plan!”
