It’s no surprise that Chatroulette is the latest media darling.
The central limit theorem tells us that a large set of random observations allows us to draw high-confidence conclusions about the underlying data set.
We started our process at Chatroulette Map, an awesome new site that plots screenshots from random Chatroulette sessions on a map.
In under two hours, we received 10,770 photo assessments from 1,012 distinct IP addresses. Before we get to the data, we should point out the uncontrolled inputs that could be skewing these results: As you might expect, you’re most likely to encounter a solo male in any given chat session. Interestingly, 11% showed no person at all while only 9% showed a solo female.
