Download the They Rule Database
I have put up the they rule database for people to download. Perhaps someone can make an interface to keep this up to date in some sort of collaborative fashion. Please let me know if you do something with this data. It is probably best that you put a disclaimer on the data - as it will have some errors in there and it will date. Amy Balkin and I collated it earlier in 2004 from the top 500 US corporate websites - and we have included the URLs of the pages on which we found the info. This should make it easier for people to keep up to date. If someone does keep it up to date - please let us plug in a they rule front end into your dataset! Presently, it is in SQL format, and I think the structure needs some work. It might make more sense to break out the connections between the directors and the companies (and institutions) into a seperate connections table.
Here it is: theyrule2004.sql
Use it as you will, no need to credit us, though we wouldn't object! Let us know what you do with it: firstname.lastname@example.org
