HI - Recall, these authoritative social graph references are from Wikipedia.


Note that Wikipedia has 11,454 words for its comprehensive, encyclopedic
entry for the May 2013 sequel "Iron Man 3." 

The same comprehensive online reference covers the entirety of 16th Century
Philosophy in 162 words.    

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16th-century_philosophy

Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow is more important than Francis Bacon.

Another big WTF? You bet.

Hi - Good to know. 

Remember, too, Facebook invented the social graph.

Social graph "...was popularized at the Facebook f8 conference on May 24,
2007, when it was used to explain that the Facebook Platform, which was
introduced at the same time, would benefit from the social graph by taking
advantage of the relationships between individuals." -Wikipedia

Gee-whiz! I didn't know that.

Of course you should all know --

"One of the earliest known forms of the social graph was created in 2002 by
Harvard student Philippe Bouzaglou in a paper published on the Harvard
Department of Economics website." -Wikipedia

G-o-l-l-y, Sur-prise, sur-prise, sur-prise! It's fun learning something new
every day.

Let's be sure to give credit where credit is due. These deserve the double
WTF-WTF.
