Human Ping

2004-02-03

Jill had a post earlier today about Friend of a Friend. I once saw a theory going something like this:

If I make a list of my friends and then ask them to make a list of their friends and their friends make a list of…etc. you’d only need to do 11 recursions to include the whole population of the world.

I just sat down and did some calculations (actually a small Max-patch). If current population worldwide is 5 billion people each of us should have a little more than 6 unique friends (6.373569 to be more accurate) in order for this to be true.

So who do I REALLY want to get in touch with……?
