Wow, that didn't take long! Chatroulette, the trendy new random webcam chat service started by a Russian teenager, is so popular that a company is now selling “start your own Chatroulette clone” scripts. If you've got $100, CamChat will hook you up with your own private Chatroulette, with extra charges to remove branding and get professional installation.
I guess I can see why people want to jump onto the Chatroulette bandwagon, but it's kind of hilarious to watch people shelling out money to copy something that caught on because of how universal and populist it is. Everyone's on even footing on Chatroulette, whether you're in America or Russia, whether you're a cute girl or a guy in a cardboard robot costume. Mini-Chatroulettes seem like they'd just turn into diluted, filtered versions of the real thing. BORING.
