Chatroulette in Class

Despite the X-rated content, the Chatroulette shown in class was absolutely incredible. It goes to show you that communication of information has changed throughout history. I remember learning in Ben DeVane's class about how information was stored by way of the Memex. The Memex was such a simple, classic machine that helped historians capture important events. Nowadays, we are saturated in google, Facebook, iPhones, Chatroulette and other social networking technologies. It's amazing that we can connect with people of different cultures. This is what constitutes a story: An enormous story of different customs and societies.

This is what constitutes a story: An enormous ________. I agree it's amazing how technology is so advanced now. Just imagine how much more advanced it'll be in the future (hopefully less private parts).
