Folds has in fact performed an homage to Merton at a concert where he similarly improvised songs while meeting people on Chatroulette. It was a live interactive webcam show where he continued his improvisation as he did on Chat Roulette. Sometimes, there was an international show at GMT (4 PM Eastern).
Merton was later hired by T-Mobile to do some public events in the United Kingdom; on November 24, 2010, he played in Gatwick Airport's South Terminal greeting international arriving passengers with his improv piano playing.
So, we decided compile the data ourselves by leveraging Chatroulette Map, some scrappy programming, and a passionate tech community.
We soon had detailed data on 2,883 Chatroulette sessions that tied users to geography, gender, appearance, and more.
When you go to a chat room, you go there to meet cool people and talk with them.
In the videos, Merton sits at a piano and improvises songs about either his observations of the people he is meeting or story ideas suggested by them.
Chat Alternative - one of the most popular chatroulette alternative sites in the world, with the everyday growth of new users.
Its advantages are obvious: the site is absolutely free; it doesn’t demand registration, it’s got cool and easy interface and good moderation.
If you don't like the person you meet, just press "Skip" again and then you are instantly connected to another random stranger.
And that’s how the concept of videochat was formed!
