NPR's story of the journey of tropical fish from coral reefs to aquariums got me to thinking about flat screen panels and webcams. Found a bunch of sources like these, WebCam Central, WebcamSearch, Webcam-Index, etc. An alternative to a live tank in a home, restaurant, or office might be a live window on a variety of fish and other animals you are not likely gonna want to house and feed (see elephants at Zulucam).
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
