Viewing the voyeurs - my new favorite sport

A while back, I got an email from someone - not even sure male or female - asking me, not unkindly, how I could live with a webcam on me all the time.  I answered and asked in my reply, how they came to find my cam.

I have two webcams (different views of the same room) and while neither are hidden, finding them randomly wouldn't be all that easy, I don't think.

The person replied - quite shocked to have heard from me - that one of my cams was on something called Openpedia.  I'd never heard of Openpedia but I easily found me. It's a webcam site that appears, for the most part, to be non-porn webcams around the world.  It looks like they are added by bot and include geographical info with a map. It's really kind of cool and a little addicting.

At the time, there were a couple of comments which were amusing.  The funniest was the one where someone who had seen the cam without me in it for a while and then saw me and was shocked.  She did not expect someone who looked like me to have a room like that.

Then, yesterday, I got a notice that someone new on Flickr had added me and left comments.  The comments were really sweet and one indicated that she had done a fair amount of research on me and was respectfully appreciative and curious.  It sounded a lot like Openpedia so I went back.

Now I have 84 comments and a bunch of conversation - someone found my Google profile so now they know more about me and the bears.  And they don't like the living room rearrangement - and, honestly, I don't blame them but it's the best I can do with the air conditioner, I think.

Anyway, it's hilarious to 'listen' in on a conversation about me based on my living room.  I'm kind of tempted to join in the conversation but I don't want to ruin the fun.
