Nice to meet you. / Book

Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.

Hello, nice to meet you. The Book contains the analogue documentation of my virtual 24 hours journey via Chatroulette. It documents not only how coincidence sent me crisscross all over the world but also the generous handling of privacy. In spite of permanent criticism on the transparent user created by logging of Google, Facebook and Co. many users of Chatroulette seem to divulge a totally carefree insight of their social environment. While some people go on the warpath because of Google putting pictures of their front doors and curtains online, others open up for the coincidental connected chat partner and show them how they room and live.
