Submission + - Kevin Bacon Meets Wikipedia With New Pathfinding Program (oracleofwikipedia.com)

BLT2112 writes: Inspired by The Oracle of Bacon (oracleofbacon.org), The Oracle of Wikipedia (oracleofwikipedia.com) finds the shortest path between two Wikipedia articles, as in Wikipedia Golf. As explained in the site, "One selects one article as the tee and another article as the hole and then completes the course between them clicking as few links as possible. No typing is allowed. . . . The Oracle also allows you to search for the most challenging potential Wikipedia Golf courses. Can you find a longer course and merit a place in the 'records' section?"
