Your reference to capture the flag actually sparked quite a few game ideas that could be done with chatroulette … one that might be really interesting is to combine the idea of chatroulette with that of speed dating/ignite (randomly connect you with a person that’s on, start a 5 min. clock…bounce you to someone new when those 5 minutes are up)I’m also wondering what ‘crowdsourcing’ could be done with this idea (seems like something along the lines of the ESP game)…If nothing else, chatroulette def. sparks the brain into non-stop action! ??
In any case, this is definitely a trip back to the simpler 1.0 days of the internet. Maybe the next component is mapping location via IP, and then matching people based on interest. You could port over your information via Connect and run a sequence to meet people the furthest away from you based on your interests.
As a fresh 27 year old, it reminds me of the novelty I felt when I first discovered the AOL and IRC http://d1v3t0rdobjdgs.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/28092948/nintchdbpict000366413241.jpg” alt=”escort Knoxville”> chatrooms in the mid 90’s. Glad to see the next generation of teenagers feel the same excitement about a new application.
It reminds me of early chatrooms, where people instantly type in a/s/l except this time we are privileged enough to really figure out age and sex
Facebook lets you connect with people you already know. Twitter with people you don’t know at all, have known in the past or met offline. This looks like it lets you meet, get to know, and connect with new people online. It is a fundamental difference.
In the 2 minutes I just spent on chatroulette, I saw 4 guys masturbating. Not my cup of tea. Chatroulette does not tolerate broadcasting obscene, offending, pornographic material and and we will have to block users who violate these rules from using our service.2. Please use “Report inappropriate video” link to notify us about inappropriate content and we will take necessary steps.”…then they may show potential, but until then it’s a dangerous property.Though the porn industry does make a lot of money…
I hear you Reese, I noticed some interesting activity aka some guys stroking the salami. It’s almost a cross between Waynes world and Clock work Orange. No doubt, it was a weird experience though. As disturbed as I new I should be there was a component that struck a cord. I wonder if you are on during different times of the day you get different content.One thing stuck out in Fred’s post and thats this being viral with the younger generation. Scary to think people can have this type of instant access with 8th graders.
“I wonder if you are on during different times of the day you get different content.”On the internet, it’s always 2am somewhere.
If they really can keep up with their own terms of service:”1
that’s the part of it that creeps me out. also creeped out sam. he vowed never to go back. then he did
maybe hashtags and some high-level categorizatioan would help with the creep factor. imagine hitting up chatroulette early this morning when the earthquake hit illinois or checking in with the snow-swamped in the northeast. it makes me think of a video twitter. and i’d call it raw rather than pure.
I was just about to write about this idea per Charlessmith’s idea about the Super Bowl Parade. if users could tag their stream, it would match people accordingly. when news hits, it makes anyone a citizen journalist, at least on a one on one level.now it’s starting to sound like a Twitter/Ustream mashup.
