the kid who created

Andrey Ternovskiy, Creator of ChatrouletteHow long did it take to build?
It took me three days. I built it on an old computer I had in my bedroom.

Then what happened?
I showed it to my friends and they criticized it; they asked why anyone would want to use it. So I went onto a few forums and asked people to try the site, and I got 20 people to try it.

How many users do you have now?
Well, after the initial 20 users the site doubled and it continued to double every day since then. Last month I saw 30 million unique visitors come to the Web site and one million new people visit each day. It continues to multiply and I just couldn’t stop it from growing.

What were you thinking while this was happening?
I woke up one morning and checked my computer and saw all of these news articles about Chatroulette. I yelled to Mom to come and look at my computer. At first she was very nervous, but she doesn’t really understand it very well and asked me why I’m not going to school.
