If you read sam’s ny mag piece (which I linked to in the post) doing it with his friend got him back into it after a first experience not unlike yours

The gaming was probably 10% of the thrill for her (although she is into the game part too)

I think it’s fascinating. I expect this type of function to appear on Facebook and other social networking sites down the road. This is huge. I feel like for the first time, I honestly, can see where things are headed and once you’re able to do chatroulette within interest groups, it’ll have a real purpose for adults.

My first job out of HS while i was going through university was a company in Toronto called Telepersonals (my brother had done the original computer programming for http://besthookupwebsites.org/escort/lafayette it – it was all telephone based dating and chat services)

It really reminds me of an old ICQ feature – Start random chat. Basically instead of IM with one of your friends you could have started and IM session with a random person online. I actually really liked this feature. It allowed me to kill some boring time by talking with complete strangers who sometime were very interesting people from all around the globe.It’s not a replacement or a competitor to Facebook. It simply answer a very important need that still exists of connecting with new people in unexpected ways.

My head is still spinning from ChatRoulette. Not sure if I’m ready for the today’s post, may need a nap first.It was a barnburner. Thanks, Fred.

When it stared it was full of weirdness and weirdos. Of course, over time it’s turned into a over 100 million dollar a year company in multiple countries called Lavalife.I will say however, the chat service was bar far the strangest part of it. All of us being pretty young at the time, one of our tech guys rigged the phones so we could hear what the heck was going on (working there we just sold memberships and were as perplexed as anyone as to what people really were ‘chatting’ about). All i could think of at the time was the Henry David Thoreau quote “we live lives of quiet desperation” and honestly, i think if random video chat services will tap into anything it’s that.

I have a friend who recently weaned herself off an addiction to online poker. The community was the pull. She described it as worse than high school – popularity, alliances, betrayals. She couldn’t keep herself away, because her real life was a little slow, some low-grade despair.There is a strain of housewives stuck at home, a little bored, who will definitely be drawn to ChatRoulette teleportation.

community is almost always developed around a common theme, whether it is geographic or it is a an idea, or experiencecommunity – “of commmon interest”this “randomness” comes from lack of common themes. when left to our own devices without a common interest or theme our basic human nature comes out and that is porn and random shit.the next iteration maybe to allow people to build communities or identify with topics.

I find it especially interesting that this particular piece has generated so many comments in just over a day – 263 at this time. The subject must strike a chord.
