At first glance, the web may appear to be an almost random mass of information.

However, researchers say that in fact,there is a 'Kevin Bacon' effect - meaning any web page is connected to any other by just 19 clicks.

The researchers originally determined this by constructing algorithms that collected all the links on a Web page and then followed them to their destinations, and repeating the process over and over again.

His research, first published in Nature in 1999, has now been expanded and published in the prestigious Philosophical Transactions Of The Royal Society.

His team found that in fact, any page on the web can be linked to any other via a surprisingly small number of clicks, known as the 'small world property'.

It say 'that two nodes are likely to be connected, even in such a very large and sparse scale-free network as the Web, by a relatively short path of nodes—in the case of the Web, the path length is about 19,' said Professor Barabási.

He claims the key to the web's fast expansion yet small 'Kevin Bacon number' is the emergence of massive 'hubs' such as Facebook and Google.

'Such networks are in effect held together by a small number of highly connected hubs,' he writes.

'This scale-free property is an important organizing principle for the Web.

That is all well and interesting but what I am having trouble fathoming is how you could have possibly not thought of using the bacon icon when titling this thread?

I thought of using it, but then I thought maybe Kevin would find it disrespectful.

I'm pretty sure it ties in with the Bacon effect.

We haven't watched it Kreeper, but we were planning on doing so. cheers.gif

The writing and acting seems pretty good. It looks like a serious attempt at a conspiracy drama.

It wouldn't matter if it were about tutu and rainbow afro wig wearing, tuba playing midgets having sex with a purple and orange Danny Devito. It stars Kevin ğkking Bacon!

Bacon must add a lot of flavor to the show.
