Any 2 Web Pages Are No More Than 19 Clicks Apart, According to Hungarian Physicist

This is a fascinating idea – akin to the pop culture idea of “The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon”! Professor Barabási posits that “the tools of network science can help us understand the Web’s structure, development and weaknesses. The Web is an information network, in which the nodes are documents (at the time of writing over one trillion of them) connected by links. Other well-known network structures include the Internet, a physical network where the nodes are routers and the links are physical connections, and organisations, where the nodes are people and the links represent communications.” [Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society]
