Are there really lots of people on the internet

You see all sorts of stats of how there are millions of people using the internet, and thousands blogging etc. If that’s so, why is the world so small, Rogi is an interesting character so I read his blog, he links to some bloke called Ben, so I had a little look at his pages, where he spends his time talking about RDF, and Morbus Iff, and lots of other Semantic Web peeps who I “talk” to all the time. 6 degrees of seperation, I reckon we can do it all 2… Of course codepiction is a more interesting look at 6 degrees theories.
