OWNI présente Influence Networks, un répertoire ouvert et sémantique des relations entre personnalités, institutions et entreprises. Chaque élément est noté selon sa crédibilité, si bien que le bruit reste distinct du signal. En octobre 2010, lors du Personal Democracy Forum de Barcelone , plusieurs journalistes d’investigation ont expliqué comment ils avaient débusqué des affaires de corruption en procédant à l’analyse de réseaux. L’un d’entre eux, Dejan Milovac, a enquêté sur un projet immobilier situé sur la côte du Monténégro. Il a décortiqué les réseaux financiers autour du projet et montré comment des politiciens locaux étaient de mèche avec les promoteurs qui saccagent le littoral.
NNDB Mapper [nndb.com] is an interactive visualization tool for exploring the connections between people in the Notable Names Database (NNDB) , a huge data source containing the biographical details of over 34,000 persons for whom the public has demonstrated a permanent interest. The online application links all the people together through family relations, corporate boards, movies and TV, political alliances, or shadowy conspiracy groups, meanwhile also revealing their age, religion or organization. Individual maps can be saved and shared for others to explore. The relationships between people and other entities are represented through a simple network view (e.g. Dick Cheney ), while some subjects and themes also include a timeline view (e.g. physicists ). Map views can be custom-made and stored for others to see (e.g. all the corporate and political connections throughout the Fox Family or the founding fathers ).
NameBase is a web-based cross-indexed database of names that focuses on individuals involved in the international intelligence community , U.S. foreign policy , crime, and business. The focus is on the post-World War II era and on left of center , conspiracy theory , and espionage activities. [ 1 ] Founder Daniel Brandt began collecting clippings and citations pertaining to influential people and intelligence agents after becoming a member of the Students for a Democratic Society , an organization which opposed US foreign policy, in the 1970s. [ 1 ] With the advent of personal computing, he developed a database which allowed subscribers to access the names of US intelligence agents . [ 2 ]
