We show that the sequence of integers which have nearly the typical number of distinct prime factors forms a Poisson process. More precisely, for $\delta$ arbitrarily small and positive, the nearest neighbor spacings between integers n with $|\omega(n) - log log n| < (log log n)^{\delta}$ obey the Poisson distribution law.
