The topics you'll find here have evolved over the years, and include some of the most provocative and controversial issues of our time. With our "roots" in issues surrounding conspiracy theories, UFO sightings, political scandals and corporate malfeasance, our contributors have evolved into the quintessential "newsie" who is hyper-aware of current events. Today, the dominant topics represent an alternative view on current and historical world events, often digging beyond the headlines into the gaps of knowledge left by "mainstream" news sources. Our diverse members, which include the likes of top scientists, politicians, NASA mission commanders, and esteemed academicians, are never satisfied, searching relentlessly to discover the root motivational factors behind the headlines.
Okay, again, I know what you're thinking, another one of "those" conspiracy web sites where wild ideas fan the flames of paranoia. Well, I can't deny there might be some of that, but on the whole our membership embraces an outlook that encourages a healthy mix of skeptical critical thinking with well-informed speculation. Highly speculative topics such as conspiracy theories, political cover-ups, and UFO sightings are put to a vigorous analytical test by a diversified mixture of contributors in an effort to filter out predictable and provable truths.
Nothing tells the tale of the passion of our contributing members like the raw numbers. We have 229,593 members generating 11,232,028 posts of substance that cover 690,149 topics in 166 different discussion forums. New content, new ideas, new speculation, new theories, and provable truths are being generating at an astounding pace with 935 members creating 63,077 new posts in the past seven days. In that same time span, we've welcomed 935 new members, enjoyed visits from 12,019 registered members, and 1,418,242 guests.
When we say we're proud of our contributing members, it's for good reason.
Should you feel the need to contact us regarding a story in which you need material, you can rely on our core team to be responsive and professional. And maybe even a little bit of fun, as we still have a sense of humor despite the gravity of the topics you'll see here (especially should you run into us during one of regular visits to NYC).
Or, at least if you're working on story within our broad spectrum of topics... now you know where to go.
Our CEO, Bill Irvine, is the former digital ad-agency Internet guru and social-content fanatic that makes most of what happens on the web site possible. For general conspiracy-related, Internet technology, user-generated content, and social media questions, Bill is your go-to person.
Our COO, Mark Allin, is the former finance industry insider (don't ask him about Madoff), who spearheaded the organization of The Above Network, LLC., which is our business entity. Questions related to extraterrestrials, UFO sightings, paranormal, and anything related to our business should head Mark's way.
Our CFO, Stephen Melzer, is a veteran of start-up financing and finding those pesky angel investors. He's been known to have a pretty keen take on the increasing popularity of conspiracies in the financial industry, so those and related questions about our business should be directed to Stephen.
