Linked…

Today I feel that this site has somewhat come of age. Up until now I have only been chatting to myself and a few friends and family who care to take a look from time to time. This is because this little site has sat here in its quiet corner of the Internet universe with out any connection to the outside world. It is all very well to point links to other places but if nothing is directed back to you then you are still alone.

Over the past few weeks I have been reading a book called “Linked – How everything is connected to everything else and what it means for business, science, and everyday life”. This is one of many books about networks, the Web, small worlds, scale free systems and their ubiquity, complex systems and so on. As you can imagine all of these ideas are linked to each other as well.

For the first time I discovered a link from another web site to this one. As trivial as this may be in function, the connectivity that it opens up is not. You see, the site that linked to this one can be found on Google which means that my page is only 2 links away from the effective centre of the Internet.
