Is ChatRoulette the future of the Internet or its distant past?

"The first time I entered ChatRoulette — a new website that brings you face-to-face, via webcam, with an endless stream of random strangers all over the world — I was primed for a full-on Walt Whitman experience: an ecstatic surrender to the miraculous variety and abundance of humankind. [...] The first eighteen people who saw me disconnected immediately."

We talked for half an hour with a 28-year-old tech writer from San Francisco.

Web 1.0 wankery. Why not just call phone numbers at random?

When this thing is "curated" by the use of filters, or separate groups form up based on common interests (eg debate politics with a stranger!), it will be far more useful.

Web 1.0 wankery. Why not just call phone numbers at random?

It's not that we couldn't do it before. It's that there was never a venue before that existed entirely to video chat random people. Kind of like how ICQ or Omegle gave people a reason to talk to random people, this lets you do the same in person.

The Internet gives you a safety net because you can always close the screen. You're not stuck at a diner with a random person who might bore you or unnerve you, you're talking to somebody that you can get rid of with a click.

The Web 1.0/Web 2.0 argument is pretty stupid. A better set of questions: Is this interesting? Is this enjoyable? Will I reminisce fondly about this?

The writer -- in that typical New York Mag way -- had to have been being snarky or facetious when he said that he was expecting a "full-on Walt Whitman experience," because this experience would have made Walt Whitman instantly burn all of his writings in a bonfire, slash his largest convenient veins, and jump screaming off the nearest tall building.

I spent too many hours on this site last night. It was pretty fascinating; most of the time the stream is of a bunch of men alone at their computer scanning the site. I started waving to see who would wave back at me, and then I had some pretty awesome conversations with people from all over: China, Macedonia, Romania, Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, lots of kids who were pregaming in college dormitories some where. There were people who were ripping bongs on screen, an ungodly amount of masturbation, cameras pointed at stuffed animals, cameras of someone holding a message. I had a great time.

I spent one night on chatroulette sewing with my Singer Featherweight in between me and the camera. I had quite a bit of interest - people would look closer to try to figure out what I was doing, and when they asked I would show them the baby blanket I was making.

I also have a somewhat unique winter hat that I seem to wear all the time, that catches peoples interest as well.

My takeaway is that to "succeed" on Chatroulette (i.e., get people to stop and actually talk to you), you need a hook or a gimmick.

(of course, there were also a good numbers of young boys who would exclaim "fag" and disconnect immediately)

I think "The first eighteen people who saw me disconnected immediately when they realized I wasn't a drunk naked chick." would have been the correct way to describe events.

I mean this: it was like watching someone have an epiphany, but not quite. A moment where they realized some new dimension of bodily horror that they hadn't thought before possible. It was their soul being exposed to the raw animality of humanity, and all of its sweating, lusting, digust. That instance, captured crystalline in a single frame of digital information. And, even more than that, it was the feeling that I had thinking, "I can't believe someone is still surprised by this!" Because even more than their feeling of shock was the moment where I realized the true nature of my apathy. The reach of the corruption (the wisdom) that the internet has given to my soul.

It was all thing past and future delivered at once. Everything, everything, in what that man was doing to his anus.

posted by keptwench at 7:12 AM on February 8, 2010


so,

last night I couldn't sleep. the reason I couldn't sleep is that - out of nowhere - I had come up with all of these horrible horrible things to do to people on chatroulette using camtwist.

a few things I came up with:

-edit a video to stream on chatroulette through camtwist. the video would start with a downloaded clip from an actual porno cam girl's cam show. it would start at about one minute before she starts taking her clothes off. type appropriately flirty/sexy things into the chat box while it's playing so people think she's there typing to them. then, just as the first article of clothing is right about to come off enough to reveal something... the video cuts to one of the parts from 2 girls one cup where they're puking and pooping on one another.

-play a "best of" compilation of scenes from Cannibal Holocaust over and over again. (alternate choice, the pivotal scene in Irreversible, all 9 minutes of it, on loop.)

-a variation of the 1st idea where, instead of cutting to 2 girls 1 cup, it cuts to the scene in Bruno where his dick is being thrust at the camera repeatedly, but on loop so it never stops.

I don't know why I came up with these things. I don't think I would actually want to do them, because they're basically just cruel and awful things to do. I think it might be because of all the stories I was hearing about obnoxious people disconnecting automatically or saying "show tits" to every girl they saw. somewhere, unbeknownst to me, my brain had latched onto the idea of these people being horrified just as they thought they were getting their ideal objectified dream woman on cam.

i think some part of my brain is really fucked up.

I don't know why I came up with these things. I don't think I would actually want to do them, because they're basically just cruel and awful things to do.

It is easy to be cruel, but not much fun. People disconnect fast enough without offensive videos. It is a lot more fun to find stuff that people enjoy, and watch their positive reactions.

Many people like amateur singing and dancing. They probably think the person in the video is actually live.

Almost everyone likes fat people dancing. The more obese and happy, the more people enjoy it. Works for men and women, young and old.

Few people respect TECHNOVIKING, but those who know him, love him.

No one likes Chocolate Rain.

There is far less rickrolling than I expected. Someone should get right on that one.

My friend, in the midst of the masturbators and wierdos, got the Jonas Brothers. Swear to God.

That's weird, I wouldn't expect the J Bros to hang out with that kind of crowd, but nothing surprises me these days.
