Bill Thompson is pleased to see the punk ethic alive and well onlineAnyone with a few minutes to spare online might enjoy visiting- the finest expression of punk mentality from the emerging internet generation that I’ve yet come across.It’s not hard to play, as there are only three rules. You have to be aged 16 or over. You’re asked to please stay clothed. And you can alert the management by clicking F2 if you don’t like what you see. Click ‘New Game’ to start a game, give the service access to to your camera and microphone and you begin a video conversation with a random stranger.Chatroulette uses Adobe Flash to turn on the camera and microphone on a visitor’s computer and register their IP address with the site. It then connects that user with another, random IP address and opens up a connection between the two, so you can start to chat.Even though it’s getting millions of users, Chatroulette is very scalable because, like the original Napster, the data doesn’t actually go through the Chatroulette site itself.
