Pretty sure I “nexted” my future husband on Chatroulette tonight.
He was 18, from New Jersey and had braces. We knew we were meant for each other when I “nexted” him once and, despite the fact that 20,000+ members were on, we were soon face-to-face again, only 30 seconds later.
He is going to school at Michigan State next year with a swimming scholarship. He has curly hair and a green towel hanging off his chair.
“Facebook’s coming at it from a corporate position. It’s basically like AOL in 1997 — everything is there and there’s no need to go anywhere else. I don’t know if they’re even considering what users want anymore. It’s all about how to maximize revenue and all that crap. It’s wanting to be everything to everybody possible so they won’t have to go anywhere else.”—Conversation with Metafilter Founder Matt Haughey « sood (via rickwebb) (via cassel)
