Have Interlocking Directorates Changed Over Time?

As an offshoot of my thesis research, I've produced some graphs showing which influential corporations have interlocking directorates (two companies with the same director on both of their boards). The images are still rough but rather interesting.

Each line represents an interlocking directorate.

No deep analysis conducted yet, but just at a glance it seems like our major corporations have become much more connected than they were ten years ago.
