The incestuous universe of late capitalism

TheyRule is one of the most amazing Flash apps I’ve ever seen. It’s an interactive explorer for interlocking directorships of major corporations, in which you can trace the relationships between, say, Coke and Pepsi (Robert E. Allen is on Pepsi’s board and Bristol-Meyers’ board; James D. Robinson III is on Coke’s board and Bristol Meyers’ board), or the conglomerated media giants. Pop-up menus take you to details on the people and companies, allowing you to explore further. If you want a graphic, vivid account of the incestuousness of late Western capitalism, look no further.
