“They Rule”

Hey everyone!

Be sure to take the time to check out the ‘2’ link on the course website. I will also link to it here, because it is so cool: www.theyrule.net

It is a really incredible application that allows you to create mappings between the Board of Directors of many of today’s most powerful companies/institutions. Many of these people sit on multiple boards… it’s really interesting to hunt down the connections between major corporations. For example, did you know that Coca-Cola Enterprises is only one degree of separation from PepsiCo (via Target as a middleman)? I’d like to hear what interesting factoids people uncover about other heavy-hitters in our consumerist world.

See you tomorrow! – Jor

  1. the flash programming is really cool, but either its just me or its poorly viewed. Like in the microsoft vs. apple map you can hardly see the entire map. There’s no scroll function or anything. =/
