How to Feel Unique

On a better day, 7 viewers.

On a better day, 7 viewers.

In spare moments at my computer, I often check the high quality, full-screen, live webcams showing the Boca Raton beach, and the ports of Ft. Lauderdale, Cape Canaveral, Key West, and Bermuda.  When the weather is bad here, it is nice to watch the warm surf and waving palm trees of Florida.

The webcams are all provided by the same company and they recently added one of the Atlantic City beach in front of Convention Hall.  At night, they zoom in on some sort of repeating light show on the face of Convention Hall

Atlantic City is no Boca Raton, but the other morning I watched it anyway to get an idea of the weather at the Jersey Shore, which I admit was pretty gloomy at the time.  I captured the still photo shown above on a better day.

In the upper left corner, I noticed the number of viewers: 2.  On the World Wide Web, available to 7 billion people on the planet, only two of us were watching, and one of them was me.  Who was the other person?  The cameraman’s mother?

I would like to see this information shown on TV.  On some of these late-night programs, that might encourage me to turn it off and go to bed.

My reasons for writing this blog are spelled out in the posting of 10/1/2012, Montaigne's Essays. They are probably not what you think.
