you are now chatting with a random stranger. say hi!

After two weeks of not writing, I'm making my comeback with Omegle. I can't decide if Omegle is amazing, horrible, or interesting though I'm leaning towards a postmodern combination of all three. Or just horrible.

Omegle's subtitle - Talk to strangers! - sums it up. It's very simple. You log on and the server connects you to some random person in some random place in the world. You don't know anything about the other person except for, "Hey! What's up?". You get no photos or choices or information at all, just a blank screen and then, suddenly, a greeting.

I'd have to get about 150 times more bored than I usually get to actually spend time small-talking with a faceless soul I'll never meet when it's hard enough to simultaneously pull off being a good friend and family member and girlfriend and employee to the people I already know. Not to mention squeezing in hours to read and write just for myself.

But who knows? Maybe it's a cool social experiment.

Or, judging from the thirty seconds I spent on Omegle, maybe not:

dear agay:
whoa, that is some crazy stuff. you knew it would be like that, right? i'd love to know the demographic of that site's users, i mean besides people like you, who were probably doing it simply to keep herself from ordering yet another pair of luscious boots. right?
