Six Degrees of Separation

John Guare’s play and movie “Six Degrees of Separation” are based on the notion that any two people in the world selected at random can be linked together by no more than six degrees of separation. Guare’s script spawned the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, which shows that movie actors from any era can be linked to Kevin Bacon.

Oracle of Bacon

The Oracle of Bacon seems like a more useful way to show the relationships to Bacon. It makes more sense to me to enter an actor's name and see how they connect to Bacon. The version works in the opposite direction, branching out from Bacon, but it doesn't show all the possible connections. Fun, though.
