Would Ternovskiy sell ChatRoulette?

It seemed as if ChatRoulette was everywhere a few weeks ago, and the buzz is back after founder Andrey Ternovskiy made an appearance at TechCrunch's annual conference last week.

It seemed as if ChatRoulette was everywhere a few weeks ago, and the buzz is back after founder Andrey Ternovskiy made an appearance at TechCrunch's annual conference last week. ChatRoulette, the topic of this month's Domains section, is a video version of online chats, randomly putting two people together. Ternovskiy spoke about the possibility of selling the site, CNNMoney reported:

"The bigger it gets, the more serious it becomes," Ternovskiy told CNNMoney. "It's not really pure entertainment as it was in old days, so I have to learn new things like about how the investment system works, how the economic system works. It's interesting. I hope I'll deal with it somehow."

As Ternovskiy focuses on the business behind his site and continues working on a solution to limit the sexual content, the big question in the tech world is whether he'll sell Chatroulette.

"The conclusion I came to is if I would sell, I'd sell for the sake of becoming rich, and the first thing I'd do if I were rich, I'd buy something. I'd make an investment...that investment would be buying Chatroulette."
