For those that don't know and didn't click thru, chatroulette is a service that lets you video chat live with random strangers. My daughter in college tells me it is way more popular than Facebook on her campus right now.
But as Sam Anderson writes in the most recent NY Magazine: On a day when all the tech blogs are discussing what Google's latest attempt at social means for Facebook, Twitter, and Friend Feed, I find myself wondering what to make of chatroulette.
My daughter in high school tells me all the boys in her school are into chatroulette.
And my eighth grader son tells me some of his friends are "obsessed with it". But my son's assertion that chatroulette is porn doesn't seem exactly right to me.
Sam Anderson describes this experience: We ended up staying on, talking and dancing, connecting and disconnecting, for four hours.
