The term can thus mean any technology ranging from real-time online chat and online interaction with strangers (e.g., online forums) to fully immersive graphical social environments.The primary use of a chat room is to share information via text with a group of other users.New technology has enabled the use of file sharing and webcam to be included in some programs. The first online chat system was called Talkomatic, created by Doug Brown and David R.
'And I don’t want it to be this thing where, you know, we go out to do something or to dinner or go shopping and you know, or her coming out to visit, and not buying something for herself.'Adding: 'And I said to her, you know…we have to remind ourselves sometimes when we come to your place we talk about, you know, this concept…we’re all in this place, and it’s very hard for us to think about getting a house or these cars…when you have no new clothes, or that you have holes.'Meyer claims in the same interview that he would see Jolie two or three times a week when she was in the city, meeting either at her flat or at the hotel.
Each time, she would generally spend around $100 on heroin and cocaine, he said.
It offered several channels, each of which could accommodate up to five people, with messages appearing on all users' screens character-by-character as they were typed.
Talkomatic was very popular among PLATO users into the mid-1980s.
The footage, however, gives no clues as to who she is speaking with. But to, you know, I said what if I don’t work for you, what if I don’t make that much money?
The conversation is hard to make out as it seems to involve an ongoing family issue: 'You know but it’s, you know it’s, whatever that house… And you stay in an apartment until I make more money so that you can get a bigger house. 'You know, I don’t want this to ruin our relationship,' she continued.
Meyer said Jolie, who at the time was seeing the actor Billy Bob Thornton, her future husband, was also startlingly open with him about her debauched sex life, including Thornton’s sexual prowess, her love of sado-masochism and her lesbian urges.
He says she confessed to having had a lesbian affair with actress Jenny Shimizu after they starred together in the 1996 film Foxfire.
That was her way of telling me she wanted me to bring her drugs.
Meyer, who has made previous claims about supplying the actress with drugs, said he kept filming her as her father, Hollywood star Jon Voight, rang and they discussed her brother, James, and late mother, Marcheline Bertrand.
Generally speaking, the ability to converse with multiple people in the same conversation differentiates chat rooms from instant messaging programs, which are more typically designed for one-to-one communication.
