I tried it a few times by clicking on the link to start chatting with a stranger.The first thing I was asked was “asl” – meaning what is my age, sex and location. On the second test, I ended up in a brief chat with a young man, a software developer from India.I mainly use this messaging platform for work, and I was puzzled, as I did not recognize the name of the requester.I performed a quick web investigation on the name of the account, as well as contacted a co-worker to see if this was simply someone new at work trying to connect with me via Skype.So right away we have probably answered the question in the title of this post!Omegle is not okay for kids – unless you are okay with your kids chatting with complete strangers. Omegle has been around since 2008, with video chat added in 2009.With the compilation out this morning, we opened up a group chat on Skype with four of the six founding members to discuss the origins of Box Of Cats, plans for the label this year, DJing naked, and much, much more.Oh ya and also everyone was actually naked while we did this group interview.
It makes conversation casual, it makes communication common, and most importantly it serves as an outlet of our emotions when you make sex via skype.
That’s made it difficult for all half dozen of these guys to get together, but they are in constant communication regarding releases on BOC — all of which need unanimous approval from the group.
The latest release — out for free download today — is the third installment of Box Of Cats’ compilation and features 13 new originals from BOC crew Wongo, Jeff Doubleu, and The Potato Heads (aka Tom EQ Jeff Doubleu) as well as folks like Dilligas, Jay Robinson, and Mancodex.
All results were negative, but this strange unknown person piqued my curiosity.
This is the very social engineering angle that such a request plays upon, as once you accept the request, you will be engaged in a discussion with a chatbot.
