Have you heard of ChatRoulette?

I hadn't heard about it until today when I read an article on Apophenia. I love this website for it's non judgmental take on all things web 2.0. I have learned a lot from Zephoria and today I learned about this game designed by a 17 year old who learned to write code when he was 11! Basically you log in and are anonomously connected via your web cam to another person, you hit next and there is someone else staring back at you. Most people who use it are young. Sarita Yardi described ChatRoulette as "an online Lord of the Flies." Read more about it here. Super interesting article sharing varied predictions and issues.
