Who is related to whom?

Well I am not talking blood relations, but I am talking about media events like business dealings etc. Now you can find out who is dealing with whom!

I cracked up when I came across this site, Namepedia. (Make sure that you open Explorer before you visit this site, as it will not work on Firefox.) A word of caution. I think this site is put together by a blind robot. Just check the photo of Noel Lynch! Noel, is that really you?

Fellow bloggers, you could have fun with this. BU you ran an article on Clyde Mascoll,
Namepedia can show you who his business relatives are here.

BFP you want Prime Minister Owen Arthur ? Try Namepedia here.

How do I use this amusing treasure?

Go to the Real People tab. Type in the name of a famous person. Try “Owen Arthur”. (Sorry, BFP, I did not have any luck with “Iain Deane”.) When you click “Search”, you will go to this page:
http://www.namepedia.org/en/real_people/Owen_Arthur/
The page will show Mr. Arthur’s photo and lines connecting him to people and companies. Of course, it may not be reliable, but it is a good place to start research.
