    I wanted to let you know about a cool application that was buried a couple of clicks deep on the Forbes site.

    If you go here:

    You’ll find an interactive relationship viewer that we (GroupScope, Inc.) created in a partnership with Forbes to show the affiliation networks of the list member alumni from Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale. It’s a really great interactive way to learn more about the list. Thought you might enjoy checking it out.
