Default Webcams from around the world

Here's something fun when you've got nothing better to do.

I like the Times Square cam the best, although it's tough to beat a good "monkey cam".

Now that winter is upon us, it's good fun to watch the folks trying to make their way through the snow in NYC.

Back from repair, and better than ever (now in large view, along with sound) is the "Friday's cam" at Times Square:

I can't see them on my work computer. There's a camera on Burbon Street.

Cool. I'll have to check that one out, then I'll post a link for it here.

I don't know why, I just find these cams very interesting.

LOL I found a way to communicate to people using them. On the NYC one, when people are watching the camera, I take control of it, then "wave" it back and forth from left to right. Then they wave to me, and I make the camera go up and down like it's nodding it's head. Pretty cool IMO.

wow that's crazy. I don't think you can control the one on Burbon Street, which is probably for the best. You'd go up and down with it and someone would think you wanted them to lift their top.

Here's one where you can not only control it on Bourbon St., but it's got a great zoom:

Here's the Monkey Cam:
