Chatroulette: it's not just for creeps and perverts any more. Oh, wait, yes it is.

Over at lauded political blog Crooked Timber, Duke University sociologist Kieran Healy takes an unserious look at randomized video chat service Chatroulette by asking users to show her their books. Perhaps predictably the first bunch of people she encounters claim they own no books, or are simply nonplussed that she is not a serial public masturbator, and then she eventually gets tired of all the exposed penises and quits. Cute idea though. (link)
