Mesh Network Engineer’s Blog

Why did I name my blog as a Mesh network Engineer’s blog ? It has nothing to do with Mesh networks or in fact about any network in general. But my opinion that we are all meshed together in a network, and the network is now called a cloud. Like how Frigyes Karinthy thought of the idea that we are all separated by six degrees from each other on the human web, we in today’s world are meshed together by all the social networks and cloud applications. Hence my usage of this name.

More Insight into six degrees of separation:

American playwright John Guare wrote a play in 1990 and later released a film in 1993 that popularized it. It is Guare’s most widely-known work.The play ruminates upon the idea that any two individuals are connected by at most five others. As one of the characters states:
I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people. Six degrees of separation between us and everyone else on this planet. The President of the United States, a gondolier in Venice, just fill in the names. I find it A) extremely comforting that we’re so close, and B) like Chinese water torture that we’re so close because you have to find the right six people to make the right connection… I am bound to everyone on this planet by a trail of six people.
Guare, in interviews, attributed his awareness of the “six degrees” to Marconi. Although this idea had been circulating in various forms for decades, it is Guare’s piece that is most responsible for popularizing the phrase “six degrees of separation.” Following Guare’s lead, many future television and film sources would later incorporate the notion into their stories.
