This is a fantastic site for finding the connections between people in a diagram form. The social networking diagram, like a spider web, shows the various strands connecting people and the strength of those connections.
Citations to names of individuals and groups involving :




assassinations, organized crime, and scandals
Wall Street and transnational corporations
foreign policy and media establishments
political elites from the Right and Left
Cold War history and intelligence

What happened to this excellent software and is there a similar alternative? The domain name is for sale but I cannot imagine such a useful thing disappearing altogether.

It has been down for some time. I believe you can download an older version at internet archive [?] that works on windows...I'll check where I got mine...but it is an old edition, for sure...but still handy. Nothing has replaced it and I often need exactly that - Namebase. Daniel Brandt started and ran it. I once heard the story of what killed it.....but I forget now....was it Chip Berlet?

Did Namebase also have a long series of book reviews available on the site? I was doing some research last year into interconnected deep politics volumes and can't remember the URL but I think Namebase might have been it. There was a long vertical page of book titles to click on and reviews of each.

To my total surprise (sarcasm) Namrbase brings up a message at archive.org, this URL has been excluded from the wayback machine. Gee, who chose to exclude that one I wonder?

Yes the book list still resides at namebase.net. And that is great even if not updated but it is not the visual software that I would really like. If you can get me a copy that would be fantastic. I will ever use a Windows computer if I have to ::laugh::::dalek:: Even an approximation of this software if such thing is available.

And yeah, who would possibly want this kept off the Internet Archive? /sarcasm

If you use Linux or Apple you can install Windows as a Virtual Machine [in that mode it can not spy on you] to run windows only programs.

Yes. But that is a lot of fuffing around so I prefer to keep my Linux clean and just have a dedicated Windows computer available for these things. So if there is a Windows version of the software available I can definitely use it!

Yes, there is an OLD version of it available - I'll try to locate where I found it....I had searched long and hard to find it.....
