Webcams are a fascinating enigma of the Internet. They are an intrusion into people's homes and personal lives initiated by the people themselves. They want to be watched and they want you to watch them, and lots of people do watch them.

Every day people log in to their favorite webcams and watch their favorite webcam people. To them, it's like watching an addictive soap opera. They sit and watch these people and places with the need to see what will happen next.

There are other people who believe that webcams are horrible. They believe people shouldn't be showing off on the Internet and other people shouldn't be watching them. I guess you either love them or you hate them.
