Dear me. All those folks doing naughty things on ChatRoulette, secure in their Net-anonymity, may suddenly meet a rude awakening: Chat Roulette Map, a new Google Maps mash-up, maps users’ chat image to their location, based on IP address. Last week, it also showed users’ ip addresses.
Note that Chat Roulette Map has just added a new pop-up window when you first load the page:
Welcome To Chat Roulette Map
We’d like to advise maine.edu to stop using
student’s names in their hostnames.
We’ve decided, at least for the time being, to
hide IP & host information as some user-identifiable
information was found in some entries.
No, you think? It’ll be interesting to see how this warning window evolves over the next few weeks.
