You've heard of all the Internet camera sites where you can see supposed scenes of real life. The most famous is JenniCam, which offers the delights of stalking and peeping-Tomism without all the work. There are also a couple of foodcams.
For instance, http://electrolux.se/house/kitchen/fridge/real--fridge--cam shows humorous, if pretty obviously posed, shots of people opening a refrigerator in Stockholm, as seen from inside the fridge. Some of the other fridgecams on the Net are a joke, though; the screen is always black (since the door is closed, see?).
And then there's the ClamCam. At http://pacreal.com/clamcam.html, you get images from a camera set up in a corner of a surf-side restaurant in Long Beach, Wash. Where are the clams? Somewhere out there--the camera's aimed at a stretch of beach where people often dig for razor clams in spring and fall. The image is updated every 60 seconds, but at the camera's distance, a clam would have to be about 20 feet long to be visible.
When are we going to get some more dramatic Web foodcams? Like a boiling pot of French fries a-frying or maybe Emeril Legasse's greatest "bams"?
