Everybody’s stalking

Have you ever wanted to control a webcam on the side of a building overlooking a construction site in Germany? Well, now you can (No, there doesn’t seem to be a machine gun attached or in fact armaments of any kind. Believe me, I checked.) In fact you can find any number of webcams in random places around the world with a simple Google search. I find it strangely addictive to see what’s going on at the University of Helsinki, or some town called Eindhoven, or this French parking lot at any given moment. Beyond just being cool, the practical uses are unlimited. Like maybe you might be going to France and you want to see if there’s any place to park. Done!
