The world in all its complexity and enigma, is a set of networks hidden and interwoven in a vast fabric of humanity. Whether we like it or not, acknowledge it or not, we are embedded in these vast social networks and they ubiquitously shape our lives.
In a compelling talk, Nicholas Christakis presents evidence of how our networks affect us, our friends affect us and even our friends' friends affect us.
It seems as though "you are who you hang out with" just got a whole new meaning! It gives one something to really think about.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
