Talkinator - Lightweight, Multi Site, Chat

Here's interesting concept from the folks who bring us Mailinator. While Mailinator provides you with a lightweight, disposable e-mail address, Talkinator gives you a lightweight, disposable, online chat session.

For example, if you type into the box below, you'll effectively be communicating with everyone else reading this same page. Go ahead and give it a try.

Even more fun is that you can drop the code for this chat box onto other pages, and by using the same chatroom name, they are automatically linked up. Go ahead and try it, the name of the box below is: chatsy. Grab the code here.

How is this a useful tool? I have no idea. But, it does seem like it could be handy.

If you're on the lookout for chat tools, you might also want to check out ChatInterpreter.com. It's a lightweight, translating (as in you type English, and French shows up on the other side), chat tool I built for an i2x customer.
