Stranger Danger?

stranger-danger

There’s a new site out there called Omegle that lets you chat live with a stranger.  The site, created by a high school senior in Vermont, has only been live since March 25th, and when I signed on tonight, there were over 4000 users online.  I experimented with a chat of my own, and both me and the stranger decided that it was a bit weird.

The chat is anonymous, and if you’re smart, you’ll keep it that way.  There’s also a handy disconnect button if you’re too creeped out or bored by your stranger.  I suppose connecting with a stranger is a novel idea and could be quite entertaining, but perhaps the cynic in me sees how this could get very creepy fairly quickly.   Either way, it’ll be interesting to see where this goes.
