Submission + - Only six steps?

Kenny Millar writes: "It has long been said that there are only six steps between you and anyone else on the planet. (Lets call him/her 'the other guy')
i.e. 'You' know someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows 'the other guy'

But can the same be said about the internet?
i.e. is Your web page linked to a webpage, which is linked to a webpage, which is linked to a webpage, which is linked to a webpage, which is linked to a webpage, which is linked to 'any other specified webpage'?"

Do you suffer painful illumination? -- Isaac Newton, "Optics"
