Lots of important information on powerful people and organizations and their connections is found in news stories. Read today’s New York Times, for instance, and you’ll find pieces on Newt Gingrich’s wife and the Shriver-Schwarzenegger separation. The Wall Street Journal has a lot of detail on Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype, and who the bankers were. These are good articles to “LittleSis” – to read, pull out the interesting relationships, and add them to LittleSis.
The new LittleSis bookmarklet allows you to add relationships to (and pull up contextual info from) LittleSis easily, as you read the news, without ever having to click away from the article you’re reading. In other words, the bookmarklet helps you, as a LittleSis analyst, bypass the annoyance of clicking back and forth between tabs as you add info to LittleSis; all the editing can happen right there, on the page you’re reading.
