They Rule(d)


They Rule was created by Josh On back in 2004.  The information is a bit out of date but the idea behind it is still very relevant.  The site is designed to provide a glimpse into the connections between the American ruling class.  It allows you to create maps using the board members of the top 500 companies in the US.  You can see who sits (sat) on what board and which other companies they are board members for.  The more boards a person sits on the fatter their little icon is.  You can create you own connection maps or view some of the saved maps (Apple vs Microsoft, Within 2 Phone Calls to Bush, If Women Ruled the World, and more).
