The Atlantic and Aspen Institute’s Aspen Ideas Festival has been meeting since June 26th and ends today, July 2, 2013. I love their Aspen Minutes and regularly record their PBS programs on Tivo. But, have you ever though who is behind this think tank? Is it all about money?
Muckety is interactive website that maps the connections of the rich, famous and influential.
Here is Muckety’s interesting mapping of connections at Aspen:
Notice that you can move the boxes around to see the connections more clearly or remove some of them. Mouse-over the solid or dashed connection line to see the nature of the connection. Click the vertical bar to the left to reveal Map Tools.
