Benjamin Boles has a problem: he's addicted to Chatroulette. Worse part: he has absolutely no idea why.
I have an embarrassing problem to admit. Over the past couple weeks, I?ve become addicted to Chatroulette. I can?t really explain why I like it, but everyone I?ve introduced to the drug seems to get hooked as quickly as me.
No idea what I?m talking about? Chatroulette is the latest internet craze to help further the ongoing destruction of productivity across the world. The concept is absurdly simple: it?s a two-way webcam chat program that randomly hooks up two people, until one of them clicks the next button. Think about it as human channel surfing. And like television (and life in general), 95% of it is incredibly boring ? it?s the promise of that 5% excitement that keeps you coming back.
