What you can learn by reading Slashdot

Slashdot had an interesting post today linking to a project which studied the degree of separation between different Wikipedia articles. Possibly moved by the subconscious feeling of shame due to the fact I was reading Slashdot instead of working on wx I decided to check what does it have to say about the closeness of wxWidgets to paradise. And the result was:

Shortest path from wxwidgets to paradise
November 27
Eastern Orthodox Church
3 clicks needed

I say we're pretty close to the goal! Even better, while we're only 3 clicks removed from Qt too, Qt itself is 1 click further from paradise than wx is. They have some work to do (but then maybe this is what they're doing, instead of reading Slashdot...)
