Just Six...


I just got through watching Primetime on ABC. The episode posed the question, Six Degrees of Separation: Fact or Fiction? The going theory is that we are all connected within six contacts. Primetime tested the theory using a small sampling in the Big Apple.

It is quite amazing how "small" the world really is. All the different avenues of communication shrinks the world considerably.

So -- who do you want to meet? And with a connectedness within six contacts -- why haven't you met that person?

I'm not quite sure who I wanna meet, but I do know from me bumping into many a celebrity (and not by choice most times) that if I really wanted to, I could meet anyone.

Does that answer the question?

That's a very good question.

it would be interesting to see, who in the 'blog world', you're connected too.

The combinations are too many. If I want to meet X do I start with friend a, b, c,...? And from there which friend of my friend do I choose? And so on. I wish it was as easy as just deciding who you want to meet.
