Imagine having a chat room conversation with the entire Internet.
Gogolchat offers just such an experience.
Gogol is a software that parses your chat room dialogue through a search engine, spitting back the random results as part of the chat.
At a loss for words? Never mind, Gogol has no qualms about perpetually parsing its own dialogue.
The overall experience is not unlike having an absurd conversation with the collective conscious.
Gogolchat's dada-esque DHTML manipulations make it as visually disorienting as it is textually bizarre.
