My media week 12/06/11

On The Infinite Monkey Cage Robin Ince and Brian Cox were joined by Stephen Fry, Simon Singh and Aleks Krotoski to discuss the maths behind 6 degrees of separation and whether there is something special about Kevin Bacon that seems to make him so well connected.

I regularly feature the blog Dollars and Sex. To celebrate her 100th post, Marina Adshade has a retrospective of the fifteen most popular posts to have appeared here over the past ten months. These include:
