Corporate friendster

On his radio show today Thom mentioned this fascinating/scary site that shows the degrees of separation between board members of major corporations. If any person out there doubts that the a small handful of people control most of the wealth and influence in this country, this site fairly clearly shows the connections upfront.

I highly recommend using the "find connection" function, where you can plug in two companies and see what link they have. Amazingly, and unsurprisingly, the oil and military industrial corporations (like Halliburton) have only one degree of separation from all the media companies.
