One of the interesting things about this class is when a fairly new media tool or site emerges during the semester, letting us think about how such media might take hold or peter out. One example is Chat Roulette, which has gotten a fair amount of press in the last couple of weeks. Take a look at this video about the site as well.
So have you tried it yet? What might Shirky or some of our other authors say about it? What do you think?
