Another SPAM email but I thought that the subject is quite interesting to talk about so, here it is...

The Six Degrees of Separation depicts our small world. On average, everyone on this planet is reachable within six steps. This means that there are around six people between me and George Bush Jr. for example. I've read quite a lot of on this matter but I've never really though about it until today.

One of the things I realized today is that there could be some shortcuts in the entire process. How many degrees/steps are there between my and Paris Hilton? Any suggestions? Well, the answer is zero. Between me and Paris there are no other steps just like between me and you, the reader. By giving unrestricted access to anyone who is interested in visiting this website, I unintentionally create a shortcut. You can leave a comment for this post and I will probably respond. There is nothing that separates us from communicating. Welcome to the digital age.

The reason I mentioned Paris Hilton is because I found out that she has a MySpace account, which brought the entire flow of thoughts responsible for this post. A few moments later after my initial discovery and within a few searches on Google, I found dozens of other celebrities who have MySpace account as well. -- pdp (architect) | petko d. petkov http://www.gnucitizen.org _______________________________________________ Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
