This past Friday I was Twittering away in NYC, and Andrew from England mentioned he was looking at some webcams in Times Square. So, when I got to Times Square I found the webcam he was looking at and Twittered to him I was there, and then a bunch of people on Twitter also tuned in to the webcam and took a lot of pics. Check out the discussion on the forum here and here.

Lots more pics and a transcript in the rest of this post…

These pics are from Dadist:

These pics from Andrew from England:

Here is the transcript from Twitter (in reverse order of course). I tried to copy and paste the formatted HTML in here and it kind of worked but WordPress only took about a half page of it and threw out there rest. So, this is a raw text dump of the Twitter of the whole event.
