The Amazing 19-year-old Fishcam

In 1994, the internet was still in its infancy. A fairly new software company called Netscape set up a live webcam, trained on its fish tank. It was only the second live webcam feed on the internet. In the nineteen years since, the tank has grown from 40 gallons to 600 gallons, the cameras have been upgraded, and Netscape took it offline in 2008. Within a year, Lou Montulli, the Netscape employee who originally rigged up the Fishcam, rebuilt the webcam site and brought it back online. You can enjoy watching the fish yourself, in living color during the hours that the lights are on (9AM to 7:30PM PDT). Link -via Geekologie
