Linked By Barabasi

I just finished reading this book and it is one of the well written books that I have read in a while. Barabasi explains how everything is connected to everything else and that the world and the Internet are indeed small. Throughout the book he also brings together various researchers and writers who are linked together in peculiar ways. I have tried to list here some of the characters in Barabasi's book and the links between them as mentioned in the book. I did this solely to help me put together the network that Barabasi weaves in the book but perhaps it also illustrates that the world that we are in is indeed small.
