6 degrees of seperation

ABC News Primetime just finished up and it was about "6 degrees of seperation". The story was about two strangers in New York City had to find the same total stranger, in New York City.

Greater NYC has more than 21 MILLION people. One of the people found the stranger in six links and the other person found him in FIVE. Then they took that person, Petey the boxer to find a dancer on Broadway. He did it in SIX.

Check out the link to Primetime above and here is another link to the original 6 degrees study from Columbia University. You can also take part in the Small World experiment at Columbia.

Leave a comment if you take part OR what you think about this 6 degrees of seperation thing.
