I'm fascinated with this idea that we are only a few degrees/people away from almost anyone on the planet. There are over 6 billion people on this planet and you are far more connected to them than you think.
I think Facebook has truly brought this notion home, especially when you click on a random person's profile and you find out that you have 7 mutual friends. Um. What. Eye-opening.
We're not just 6 Degrees from Kevin Bacon, but from almost everyone.
You're sphere of influence is far more reaching than you think.
