I was curious how many people have web cams? I have a friend in Korea and he recently set up a webcam and it was pretty amazing to see him live and also talk with him over the internet through instant messanger. I thought it was so amazing I picked one up for myself (only $30.00) and set it up at home. Just tonight I spoke with a friend in California who was able to see me via the cam. Of course it only works with High speed and even with high speed internet access it can still be choppy. Still pretty cool.
