six degrees of kevin bacon, redux

This is kind of surreal...Kevin Bacon has started a social network for charity fundraising, called Six Degrees.

I started www.SixDegrees.org in partnership with the nonprofit Network for Good in January 2007, more than 10 years after the game, “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” made the rounds of college campuses and lived on to be a shorthand term for the small world phenomenon. It is my hope that Six Degrees will soon be something more than a game or a gimmick. It will also be a force for good.

Hopefully it will have a better run than the original SixDegrees service.
