webcams around the U.S.A. | webcams around the World

It's human nature to be curious and explore our environment. At first, we may have just watched our immediate surrounding .. then with technological advances, we moved on to watching people and places and events elsewhere. The arrival of the Internet allowed anyone with a decent computer and connection to have a glimpse of the world without leaving the front door.

The six o'clock news and documentaries, were, and still are, THE reality shows of choice for me; other "old-school" reality TV shows that caught my attention were game shows (who didn't love seeing Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune?), talk shows (Jerry Springer's is indeed the worst television show, ever), and beauty pageants (Miss America is still on, right?). However, the new subcategories of reality tv programming do not appeal to me as I do not relate to the participants, these programs include MTV's The Real World and CBS's Survivor.

A vision of the world, according to some futurist, is the presence of ubiquitous technology allowing for complete monitoring and recording of all activities. The idea of privacy and privacy zones become a luxury. Indeed, we have arrived at the age of big brother as foretold in George Orwell's 1984.
