An Appeal to the Artwiculati!


6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°6°

I’m trying to compile an archive of ArtwicuTweets that have played with Six Degrees of Propinquity. Foolishly I did not collect the tweets as I saw them coming up in the Twitter stream and now I’m having difficulties tracking them all down. 

Do you have any that you wrote, or that you collected that other people wrote? Please tack them on to this message as Comments! (Let me know who wrote them if it wasn’t you, and what the WOTD was for that day.)

Below are all the relevant tweets that I’ve been able to find on the Top 50 pages and in my own records. (I don’t promise I’ve not missed any.)

Many thanks for your help!

From my bed of pain …

  1. GENESIS
    On 10 November 2009, the WOTD was Propinquity

    TheSupercargo: Six Degrees (6º) of Propinquity - the game for etymophiles and lexicophiles. Link two apparently unconnected words in six or fewer stages.

    TheSupercargo: 6º of Propinquity EG Distance <1> Apartness <2> Apart <3> a part (O Fr = at the side/beside) <4> Beside <5> Closeness <6>Propinquity [Tada!]

    TheSupercargo: And all without benefit of coffee - which I'm off to get now.

    TheSupercargo: @dmriver Ha! Just came into my head in the shower. Wonderful things, showers. Regard it as creative commons & torture who U like with it :)

  4. Great to see you collecting the 6 degrees tweets, John. I really have to thank you for starting this genre of tweets. I got my second ever win with a six degrees tweet. :)

    And I see that in your list, towards the end, it's mostly been my tweets. Makes me want to start doing more of them. I can't remember if I've done anymore six degrees tweets, because I tweet them as they come to me. I never save them anywhere. :(

    But great job, John, it's fun to read all the six degrees tweets in one place. :)
