Chat Roulette, which might be the most popular site on the Internet right now, generates one-on-one webcam connections between randomly-chosen users. (That means you need a webcam to use it.) Warning – it is Not Safe For Work or for Children. You will see nudity. The best way to take in the site is in a group. I have logged on twice with friends and the experience produced howls of laughter. You will see a lot of weird stuff. You might even do a lot of weird stuff. It is quite possible you will never leave your home again.
The site was invented by Andrey Ternovskiy, who claims to be a 17-year-old high school student in Moscow, Russia.
Check out the site here. Don’t say you were not warned.
(FYI: The site is discussed in this week’s Second Column podcast, which will be on iTunes on Feb. 19.)
