Visit any popular tourist attraction, in person, and there is a very good chance that at some point your image will be transmitted live to potentially millions of viewers on the web, via a nearby camera linked up to the internet. And this ‘webcam’ phenomenon is by no means confined to tourist sites. More and more public spaces, of all descriptions, are having cameras trained upon them, broadcasting images to an internet audience. Webcams are also increasingly being set up in homes, offices and other formerly private spaces, for a myriad of reasons. The entire world is becoming accessible to all, via the internet.
