I was minding my own business, editing a movie review, when my friend Bill Forman stopped by my desk and told me he'd just been OK'd to do a cover story on Chatroulette. "You mean that chat website overrun by exhibitionists and masturbators? I'd heard about the site on one of those late-night tabloid TV shows (which, of course, I was flipping past on the way to PBS). "Why are you suddenly concerned about my parenting? "Here's the thing: If I go online alone, I'm not sure I can get a story. " I'm puzzled for a moment, then realize what he's thinking.
"Well, I was thinking that as a parent, you might be interested in seeing what teens are being exposed to." "Bill, you don't even like kids," I reminded him.
I can make out rows of identical chairs behind him.
*** I don't like to back out of my agreements, but I'll admit that when Bill shows up at my house on Saturday night, it takes me two very tall glasses of boxed Chablis to stick to this one. I need to start by thanking my co-worker for suggesting this story's headline. "So basically you're saying you want me to act as — what would you call it — bait? (And, though I didn't admit it at the time, maybe a tad concerned that users just might click past me, too. "I was hoping you'd, um, help with the story," he said. As soon as they see me, they'll click, 'Next.'" OK, he did have a point there. I'm not quite as anxious, but we open it up and there we see two fresh e-mails. We chat a little longer, and when we're done, Bill can hardly wait to check my inbox.
