There's been a lot of LHC news lately but a less-publicized series of Compact Muon Solenoid
proton collision tests is scheduled for today, and CERN has been kind enough to set up a live streaming webcam
to watch the CMS in action. (There's also a view of the parking lot but I think that's more so underground-bunkered LHC staff can see the weather.) It's fairly dull viewing but if you're interested in the science of it all, it's great nerdy fun. Maybe you'll even see a black hole or two. ;)

when do web-cams stop being fun?
So when is a web-cam inappropriate? I mean, we've all seen the coffee-pot cam, the jenni-cam, etc. But when do you cross the line with web-cams? Is it reasonable for your work to setup a web-cam? How about a school? A funeral home?
Basically, when does the web-cam stop being fun? I think I have a candidate. crime.com
is the first site on the net to have a web-cam in a working jail. Please discuss.
