Chat Roulette

ChatRoulette gets the NY Mag treatment.

Our most popular new online tools -- Google, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Digg -- were designed to help us tame the web's wildness, to tag its outer limits and set up user-friendly taxonomies. ChatRoulette is, in this sense, a blast from the Internet past. It's the anti-Facebook, pure social-media shuffle.


I don't see it catching on... making a connection with random people for no reason what so ever is very 'last decade' (or indeed the one before that) with regards the Internet. I'm inclined to agree with the article

I knew there'd be a mention of this site on here. What's your take on the site? Have you spent any time on there? If you've been on for more than 5 minutes, chances are you've seen some things that would make you want to never return... But I got on with some friends last weekend and had a blast.
