Six Degrees of Separation. 

No,no, not the movie. Its a research project that is being conducted by Columbia University's Department of Sociology. Anybody can signup and join the research. Its an internet/email project where once you sign up, you'll be given the name of a stranger(the target), whom you are supposed to reach forming an email chain of six people, including you and the target.That is to prove that between you and any stranger on earth there exists just six degrees of separation, thus allowing 4 other people(email ids) who can form a chain from you to the target . Its fun, if you interested in such stuff. You can find it at Columbia's SMALL WORLD site.
