Check out this post from the folks at 800CEOREAD for Six Pixels of Separation. First, I want to give cudos to the author and/or publisher for a GREAT book title. Titles natter. Second, I would like to encourage all you sage hipsters out there to check this out (and perhaps buy it for your not-yet-hipster friends). This notion of the connectedness of things and the new ways we can and need to navigate through the virtual human web (VHW - you heard it here first) is so critical for our success and hapiness. Well, unless you are independentally wealthy enough that you can buy your own remote island and live off shellfish and coconuts.
Here is the link for the book on Amazon - there is a nice short video clip that explains the focus of the book.
