fun with webcams

I find I am a voyeur. There is something enormously gratifying about finding this list of intentionally or - more excitingly - unintentionally public web cams and watching something at random. A shoe shop - why not? A little detective work and Piggy's of Stamford turn out to be the owners. (A little more, and it turns out to be public anyway)

There is a thriller here, waiting to be written. Or a romance, or a comedy. Let's hope it's not a tragedy, involving the death of privacy. Though to be fair, the idea of a modern Oedipus plucking out his own webcams is somewhat less appalling than the original.
