Database on People and Organizations

The core of any project is its people and its organizations which implement it. Good ideas are a penny a dozen, and what counts is implementation, which is done by people, companies, advocacy groups, and government projects.

We have databases on people and organizations, but they need to be updated and better organized.

Working on this is a good way to get to know who's who, and to have a practical reason to interact with good people and engage them.

The general tasks for this project are:

  • Research the web to find people and organizations doing concrete things
    • If not already in our database, then add them.
    • If already in our database, then look at any ways to make their record more complete.
  • Respond to unsolicited inputs from the public.
  • Work with the publications database team to add and refine leads.
  • Work with the programming team to improve the database structure and functionality.

This will become an open, public database, for the most part, once it is cleaned up and put into a consistent, presentable format.

Notably, some of the information we receive has been - and will be - somewhat confidential to very confidential to the source, either explicitly or implicitly, which we should honor, so anybody working on this should have common sense judgment about what goes into the public database versus what stays in a suitably secured offline location. (We are not journalists competing for breaking stories. If you want things to write about, I can suggest many interesting topics from the open literature which journalists simply miss, and I will hope you get it right and balance your coverage.)

This is a volunteer position, but who knows, you might land a better job somewhere with some company as a result of a lead you find and develop here, and your knowledge gained by helping PERMANENT develop.

Like with other projects, we need multiple volunteers for the People and Organizations Database (POD).

By the way, if you haven't already, please add yourself to our People and Organizations Database (POD). > Please DONATE or Contribute > People and Organizations Database

PERMANENT needs a PHP / MySQL (actually, MariaDB) programmer. Are you a PHP / MySQL programmer interested in getting into space development as a career, or already working in space development? Or do you know somebody else who might be interested?

This is a volunteer, unpaid role at this point in time. A limited paid role would be considered on a tight budget, such as for at least bug fixing with some minor improvements, and/or a security review of our code before it goes online publicly. If you or one of your friends or associates may be interested, please send an email to spaceprogrammer at ... of course this domain.

To get updates on PERMANENT (occasional, not frequent), get on our mailing list.

For general or specific e-mail regarding PERMANENT, please use our Feedback page.

Leave information about yourself in our people, companies, and organizations database.

This website has a lot of text content, so here are some suggestions on how to navigate and also recognize pages you're seen already vs. still unseen pages in the SiteMap.

There are 2 ways to browse this website:

  • A menu floats on the top left (unless you have JavaScript disabled, in which case you must use our SiteMap).


  • The SiteMap page.

The pulldown menu and the SiteMap are the same tree of pages and links. The pulldown menu offers + and - for expand and collapse sections/subsections/sub-subsections... of the tree, sometimes multiple levels, whereas the SiteMap has everything expanded with no + or - expand and collapse options so the SiteMap is much longer, compared to the pulldown menu if not fully expanded. You may just choose which of the two formats you prefer at a particular time.

The SiteMap colors links red which you have already visited, vs. normal blue for still unseen. It is convenient to browse the SiteMap in one tab or window, and opening pages in other tabs/windows (Ctrl-click or right-click), such as browsing the whole SiteMap to skip pages you've already seen and to choose to open pages you haven't read yet.

The pulldown menu doesn't change the color of seen pages, unfortunately, unlike the SiteMap. However, using the pulldown menu, you can quickly browse the list of sections and other pages without leaving the page you're on. The SiteMap is a separate page of its own.
