What's the weirdest thing you saw while using cam sites like chatroulette?
Anyway, to answer your question, I'd have to say, the video games themselves. That was the most amazing thing about them -- they're not real games, they're not even realistic games, like, where you drive a car or anything. They're like crazy games where you can play with anything that moves. I actually played one where I threw stuff at people's heads and they had guns on the other side of the screen. And the people who played the video games were so happy and satisfied that they played the Crazy 8 cam right next to the Real Time with my face.
What did you do before you went on this cam? Tell your grandma?
No, my grandma didn't know. She only knew that I was shy and kind of weird. I don't think she understood that I was really into video games. I did tell her that I played them all my life, but she never believed me. She actually thought I was joking. But she was missing the joke, because she did believe me when I said that she had seen me play the games.
Has watching someone else have an effect on you as to what you would do?
Yeah. The cam is probably my most powerful influence on how I would behave. I don't know if anyone else is more influential on me than the Internet has influence on people. I used to avoid public places where I wasn't watching TV or playing video games. But now I am. I don't have to look like I'm playing video games anymore. I don't have to look like I'm Kevin Durant. I don't have to play the game at all. I can be who I want to be. I mean, that's my superpower. And it's the one power I have over other people. It's the one power I have over society. The only person in the world that has it is me.
So let's talk about cyberbullying. I know there's a new president in town who's not shy about talking about it. And I understand why he did. He's the one in control. He's the one that can fix it. Right? I just want to play the tape. I just want to play that tape. I'm going to stop right here. I'm not listening to this guy. And I'm not going to listen to this guy's assistant any more. He's annoying me.
Now, that being said, I would also ask you to please please please please please please please think about what Chris started to you personally. When you think about all the people that have been affected by cyberbullying -- parents, teachers, social workers --
Can you imagine what it would be like for a child to be forced to imagine what their life would be like if they were outed as being the bully?
Can you imagine what it would be like for a child to be threatened with
