Momma Always Said...

...don't talk to strangers. Right? And yet, if you've spent any time in chat rooms on the intartubes, you've done exactly that. In fact, a couple of my really close friends started out as chat room strangers.

A "room" full of cyberstrangers is one thing, but how about just one? A high school student in Vermont has created a website where you can talk to an arbitrary, anonymous interweb stranger from the comfort of your own computer. After trying it for a bit, I can say it's definitely an interesting experience. (And if you type in complete sentences, the feelings of superiority can be exhilarating.)

Chat with strangers at Omegle.
