Design in a small town part 4: The Webcam

There are instances when big-city life and small-town events are just as dull as one another. This perhaps highlights a deficiency in the way a technology is used to present place and event. Web-cams, for the most part, be they in New York or wherever pretty much fail to actually give us any real sense of place or feeling of presence.

I would like to see webcams that record nice high resolution images that are crisp when displayed (especially on large monitors). It will be a great day when we can actually see the paint drying as we watch it from 5000 miles away.
