One Degree, LLC was a web hosting company that existed in the early 00's. It provided an online presence for small and medium sized organizations that needed a simple brochure like website before CMS based templates became commonplace. The owner of this company has since than moved on to become a part of a larger organization, but the thought behind the name still remains... The 'six degrees of separation' theory is that all human beings are connected to each other by six or fewer steps away from each other so that a chain of 'a friend of a friend' statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. The idea of 'One Degree' implies that the internet has changed this to only one degree of separation. The icon that is a part of the logotype implies that over time one degree can make a huge difference.
