(social) Network Science

The ABC aired a great documentary on the emerging science of Network Science a couple of weeks ago. The documentary was called "How Kevin Bacon cured cancer", but contrary to the title - it focused more on how small the world is becoming, how little effort it is to contact an unknown person on the other side of the world, and how the hubs of society are conduits that keep everything running.

Awesome viewing, approx 45-50 mins - download it here.
