Over the past few weeks, I have been reading about social networks and how our social networks impact our lives. Specifically I have been looking into how social networks can be used to create social and economic change in individual families. The research has made me think differently about how I am connected to people, both those I know and those I do not know.
As I was just eating my lunch and catching up on the news of the day, I came across a post by Robert Krulwich on his NPR Blog, Krulwich Wonders…. I have to say it was a really interesting look at how individuals are connected to famous historical events and people through only one or two other people. It is like six degrees of separation on steroids. The article also has a great headline!
