From Northeastern University in Boston:

Documentary showing of…..


CONNECTED – The Power of Six Degrees

DATE
Wednesday, January 26th at 5:30 p.m.

LOCATION
Shillman Hall, Rm. 415 (Bldg. 30)
115 Forsyth Str., Boston 02115

ABSRACT
The Center for Complex Network Research invite you to join Northeastern University Professor Albert-László Barabási  in a documentary showing of "CONNECTED – The Power of Six Degrees".

The Connected documentary investigates the various mind-blowing applications of network theory in our everyday lives.  In the film, Barabási and other scientists suggest that computer viruses, infectious diseases, proteins in the cell, and human social groups are all governed by the same fundamental concepts.  By applying of these fundamental concepts to the military, to technology, and modern medicine, "network theory" scientists develop strong guides in research that may help us to control AIDS, break-up terrorist networks, and yes, perhaps even cure cancer.

This will be your opportunity to ask the questions about the science of networks, an in-depth way of learning how networks impact on you on a daily basis – your health, the technology you use and much more. The film, directed by Australian filmmaker Annamaria Talas, has received numerous international awards.

 Of course not many of you can be in Boston on that day. However, the documentary is on YOUTUBE in the form of a series of short films, each less than ten minutes long. You can view them in series or in random order. But I suggest you start with part I. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcCpEf6_Ofg&feature=related 

The films are totally accessible to anyone and require no scientific background. They will be well worth your time.
