Is ChatRoulette Video Version of Facebook, Or Porn-In-The-Pan?

 It's not even working just now, but a notice at the bottom of the home page says it'll be working in about nine hours.

I bet all the buzz about ChatRoulette has crashed its servers, what with word that this "game" enables you to chat via webcam with random people (even, surprise, surprise, Ashton Kutcher) from around the world in a kind of speed soc-net - live video of lots (and lots) of naked people included.

The site says it does not tolerate obscene, offending, pornographic material. I'm just not sure it's blocking it, either.

Can marketers use this?

Kutcher's already there - and you know what he did for Twitter.

But in an age built on targeted communications, you have to wonder if the random approach will really work for much else than porn.

Catch some of the funniest Chatroulette screen captures (including the one shown above), here.
