Real "Reality TV"

Web-accessible video cameras on every street corner

With the viewership of a given camera ranked by the Web site, you can just follow the crowds to the interesting views (particularly spectacular accidents, burning buildings, riots, couples making out in the back seat after forgetting to raise the cover on the convertible, etc.). When you got tired of watching it, you could even call the police.

It would be just like the crowds that gather on the street whenever something happens, only all on-line. You could add a chat function for people to talk to each other below the picture.

       I like it.
