kevin bacon ain’t got nothing on me. while visiting lubec i took this photo, posted it to instagram and a long time internet friend commented that her friend was visiting lubec had photographed the same thing at almost the same time and posted to instagram!
from the instagram comment thread:
susie_lh_c So strange that two people I know from totally different worlds just posted from the same location. Small world.
snowdeal @susie_lh_c both of us in Lubec?! At the same time?
susie_lh_c Yes. My friend from grad school is there right now.
susie_lh_c @snowdeal Her name is @jane_calvin
snowdeal @susie_lh_c holy cow! Picture of same thing even, that’s crazy!
jane_calvin This one is way better than mine! Small world indeed!
i think this sort of thing happens all the time and think it would be fun for about five minutes to have an augmented reality app that shows you how many degrees of separation strangers on the street are from you and the links.
