How word spreads out

I've always wondered how things spread out in this internet world. I get a joke email: who sent it first? Who sent to who? What is the sequence of forwardings?

A great recent example is the Nerd test. One of the most popular greek blogs is . yesterday the post about the nerd test was published. How did the guy find out about it? Aparently from adamo's post about it in his own blog. Where did he get it from? Aparently from my own blog, as he mentioned. Now, where did I get it from? Well, from Diki's blog.

Where did Diki found out about it? Maybe he'll tell us; it is interesting to see how this test from nothingness climbed its way up into, one of the most popular greek blogs.
