Setting aside "real" lives for the cause:, SimCosmos, perhaps better known as Antonio Maia.  Orbiter enthusiast and skilled add-on developer., the amateur's information center on NASA's activities (often imitated, never the website like the Apple is to the PC.)  Founded by Chris Bergin, dwarfs After Columbia. , I think this really is his "real" life; come here for information on how to build economical single-use launch vehicles (in reality, or in Orbiter.)

The Da Vinci Project:, This is an amateur project because it is staffed by a volunteer crew.  The Da Vinci Project is an X-prise contender and thankfully, has provided a prodigious amount of technical information on their spacecraft.

Space Island Group:, surprisingly similar to After Columbia Project, only bigger, doing for commerce what After Columbia is doing for amateurs and sims.

Integrated Time Line:  After Columbia planned, but then abandoned in favour of our current mode, an integrated time line to correllate videos, audios, and timelines together into a single document.  Fortunately, CBS' William Harwood had done so:
