    hey there friends from abroad,
    please don´t wonder if you get an email from me /The Small World project where you are told to help me finding a target person :D

    Obviously I was just bored and so I participated in this project, but actually I think its quite interesting:
    http://smallworld.columbia.edu
    in short, its just a project which tries to proof the theory that every person in the world is connected via "six degrees of separation"
    so please try to help me if you get one of those mails :D
    thx ;)

    Because I' bored to death right now, I've just signed up :)

    I gave them this e-mail pablo_vm@hotmail.com and they have given me as a target a guy from Philippines who has never went out of that country. I don't have a clue about who knows something who has been in that country on holidays, or any kind of info about it :confused:

    One question, Britta: let's suppose I send you an e-mail. Would you know if I would be comfortable lending money to you? :D

    Hey Luci!!!

    I just did my part of the job ;)

    I guess this is not going to be so difficult. I sent an e-mail to a little friend of mine in the States. Let's see what happens.

    By the way, I once saw a website which found the connection between any actor/actress of the world and Kevin Bacon, in less than 3 steps :)

    no - until now I´ve sent the mails only to people who either live in the USA, have lived or been there or most likely know people over there. And I´m not ready yet with sending mails anyway :D

    ah, thanks, cool! :)
    It doesn´t say anything about if you´d lend me money, btw :D

    Does it say something about why I chose you? I think I clicked on "religious affinities" :D

    no, sorry - iut just says "Dear Britta Hackenberger ,

    Pablo Villanueva has chosen you as the next link
    in our Small World Experiment at Columbia University.

    ----------------------
    Here's a message from Pablo ....
    ----------------------

    We are testing the idea that everyone in the world
    can be reached through a short chain of social acquaintances.
    Your objective is to use your social connections
    to move a message "closer" to a particular "target" person.

    To continue your chain, click:... "
    and so on ...


    and it was NOT recognized as spam by my spam filter :)
