6 Degrees of Seperation

a small world it indeed is :)

well whatz with the topic? ... this is not one of my regular planned posts ... just rang bells ... during my last visit to b'lore some science buff's with whome I had a blast came up with this stuff ... I used to be a tech savy but I felt in doubt ... guess its always an ocean when it comes to what you don't know ;)

Degrees of Seperation is the number of connecting nodes b/w two entities ... lets take the internet ... it is said that in this complex web any source n destination are seperated by utmost 20 (or 19 :-?) hops or links ... @ the max ... thats why the mathematical term degree :) ... hmm ... interesting?

and it is said that any 2 humans can relate with just 6 people to connect them ... this goes by the sheer virtue of every individuals social links ... tho I still have trouble accepting it ... I sincerely appreciate the concept

but what bout in the blogsphere ... I'v been blogging for more than a year now ... in its true spirit lately ... n usually I only keep myself connected well to a small circle ... 80/20 principle :) ... I beat around the bush n I see the same ppl in the blog circles ... of course referals ... but 2 many without referals ... its like a mini community ... reminds me of the documentary of Antz that I saw ... oops thats next to come ...

I wonder what would be the Degrees of Seperation of bloggers :) ... 2 or 3 maybe ?? just a thought :-?

Your blog circle is worth keeping to. It has a lot of deep, intelligible stuff being written within it. I can understand why you'd stay there. I go trawling a lot in blogs and I'm amazed at the amount of rubbish you have to sort through to find stuff you can relate to. On the degrees of separation, blogging definitely closes the divide.

well most people blog to relax from a days work ... or when they dun know what else to do :) ... in most likelyhood not to educate themselves ... I prefer a balance b/w both :)

thanks mate! yeah true... the big mother ship is waving and need to get into it sooner or later.
6 degrees of sepration...even i am a bit doubtfull... but if you have been orukutting... probably you will see someone totally connected to you by just 3-4 people.
As the saying goes "ITS'S A SMALL WORLD"

Have you heard of Linkedin
Initially, I alsoo doubted this concept. But after linkedin, I am convinced that you can relate to any person known or unknown within six degrees of separation. In fact, it is 4 in most cases... I have hardly seen people separated by more than 4 degrees.

btw, are you a musician too??

No, I am not a musician either. But yes, an enthusiast.. Have just started my violin classes just last month. Well, always wanted to play a musical instrument and my mom wished I play violin.
