The latest venture from the Napster founders aims to bring a lil bit of excitement back into the world of social media. At a time when most people are facing some form of FOMO due to the lack of excitement currently happening online (quite sad really that we have to rely on others to create our own excitement) this couldn’t come at a better time.
Or so it seems.
While most people in Asia would have a hard time getting to grips with it, our western counterparts will surely enjoy and ravel in it just like Chat Roulette. However how long before it becomes another Chat Roulette?
The problem with ventures like these is that it is easy to replace as it is based on the idea of offering a sense of serendipity, but while talking to strangers to some is a nice thing, to most they prefer to keep their identities locked away and only opened for those that they know.
Just like how Chat Roulette became a place for indecent behaviour, where there is no enforcement and restrictions it will soon follow.
I give this a start-up rating of 2/5. Simply because I don’t see it scaling to the East and can be easily replaced by other ventures that offer an element of a social surprise.

A creative solution for death penalty advocacy brief. Raise my hat to Jung von Matt which really deserves the five years-in-a-row being agency of the year for the consistency on their juicy ideas.
Alive, a German organisation advocating for worldwide abolition of capital punishment, worked with Rocket & Wink and Jung von Matt to publish “Dead Men Walking”, a cookbook with dishes that will hopefully never be served. Inmates on death row in the United States were asked what they would want to eat on their last day. Forty of the recipes were then collected in one volume, which was sent to key decision-makers worldwide. The cover material is made from American prison clothes, closed by the kind of belt used on the electric chair.
The Dead Men Cooking project was developed at Jung von Matt, Hamburg (text and client service) and Rocket & Wink, Hamburg (design and illustration) by creative directors Doerte Spengler-Ahrens, Jan Rexhausen, Felix Fenz, copywriters Marc Freitag, David Wegener, Vicky Jacob-Ebbinghaus, Stefan Golde and Estelle Raschka, art director Alexander Norvilas, illustrators Alexander Rötterink, Reginald Wagner, Julika Dittmers, Adam Bunte, typographer Jule Dittmers.
