NNDB – cool site found


Stumbled across this site funnily enough whilst looking for a pic of the Japanese emperor.

NNDB is an intelligence aggregator that tracks the activities of people we have determined to be noteworthy, both living and dead. Superficially, it seems much like a “Who’s Who” where a noted person’s curriculum vitae is available (the usual information such as date of birth, a biography, and other essential facts.)

But it mostly exists to document the connections between people, many of which are not always obvious. A person’s otherwise inexplicable behavior is often understood by examining the crowd that person has been associating with.

Bookmarked.

UPDATE

Still a cool site. Check out the ‘map’ of W. But then check out the map of Obama. No connection to Bill Ayers, ACORN, or Jeremiah Wight.

Hmmm.

Just people who hail from Chicago might suspect a different take, from what I’ve heard.

UPDATE II

Obama link revised. I clicked on his advisors map last night (hey, I’m new to the site). W link amended, too. I clicked on his ranch hands map. Main point still stands, though. Bush’s map is very detailed. Obama’s leaves out those very obvious suspects.

The original links are here and here… still worth a look.
