It’s often said that everybody in the world is connected to each other by only six degrees of separation. Like me, you may be sceptical but here’s a funny wee story my friend John sent me recently.
John was reading the online blog of a screenwriter. There was a link on the blog to a book writer, so he followed the link. On that page there was a link to someone the book writer met at the Book Festival, so he followed that link too. That took him to the webpage of my neighbour and she has a link on her page to “the bicycle diaries”.
Not even six degrees!
