    Ok, you can now look up the distances from all persons to one certain one, or a shortest path between two persons:

    So far you need to enter WCA-IDs. Letting you search names and choose the right ones would/will be more work.

    Here's the version with Bacon, btw:
    http://oracleofbacon.org/

    And yes, according to that, Tyson indeed has a Bacon number of 2.

    My Blonk Number is 2. Thanks to Dave Campbell.

    On your program, how is the passage decided if there are 2 people who would give you the same Blonk Number? Alphabetized?

    Oh and on my page, I only show the first shortest path I find, not all of them. I might change that to showing the first few, or add showing the number of different paths.

    Hmm, my average is 1.9372. Is that 11th? Or is there someone between me and Piti?

    Yay!

    Oh, and this is really cool. Thanks for putting this together, Stefan. One other question: I see that, for instance, 2009LINJ04 is separated from 65 people by 6 degrees. Who are some of these people? It's pretty clear nobody can be further than that, as Lars is separated from everyone by only 3.

    By the way, I'm just curious - who on here has an Erdős number? Knowing the math tendencies of cubers, I can't help believing there are a few. Jessica Fridrich has an Erdős number of 3.

    If you want to search, go here.

    EDIT: I have an average Blonk number of 2.6876, I should go to more comps

    EDIT2: I got Unknown WCA-ID '2003VAND01'. when trying to connect with Lars.

    No. You have a Blonk number of 2. The 2.6876 is the average Neil Wu number.

    Oops. Thanks. Will look into that tomorrow, going to bed now.

    You could make a poster for the graph where the vertices are competitions and they're connected via competitors, that one would be much smaller. Show only its minimum spanning tree (counting the sum of all paths from the root, I mean, don't know the name for this) and it might look quite nice. For bonus style points, use every competitor at most once.

    Seems strange that Ton Dennenbroek is not in the top 10.

    My Blonk number is 2 apparently >.<.

    I'm 783 in the cubieverse >.<. Haven't met any Euro cubers...

    I guess I'm the only one connecting anyone over here to the rest of the world as well. Our very own WR holder is placed 8674 in the cubieverse >.< .
