Weekend update: Other things I found last week:

Since I failed at getting the updates done last week, these links may be a little stale. But if you didn't run into them somewhere else, there's some good stuff here. I'll be posting newer links as the week goes on.
More useful links....

    Governments, Politics:
  • Where the donors come from: Political MoneyLine's database of donors to House, Senate, Presidential candidates and 527 groups organized by state.
  • News Search Portal: huge page of links to all sorts of news searches, audio and image searches, RSS readers.....

  • Accurint has added a "People at work" search. You can search for a person and get information about places he/she has worked. Info is not 100% accurate, and may be based on something like Eliyon Networking (free), where you put in a company name and get names of people who probably worked there. (Info here comes from Web news sites.) The Accurint search is $1 per name, and in one search I tried the info came from state corporate records.
