What's the difference between a cam and a camera anyway? They both take photos and videos, but a cam is enhanced by the internet.
Sure, on the one hand, that means selfies and doggy daycare cams. And who doesn't love selfies and doggy cams?
But also with a webcam, families separated by continents and oceans can talk face-to-face, news can be streamed live online as it happens, someone unable to speak can relay a message to someone else unable to see or read signs. Or a window can be opened from your desktop to another place.
There's nothing wrong with photos, but with the power of the web, a camera becomes so much more powerful (just remember to cover yours up when you're not using it).
That power is also behind the new TLD .cam.
On Wednesday, December 14, .cam will be entering the GoLive phase. That means .cam domains will be open to everyone, first come, first served, for $40.25 per year at A rates*.
If you've got a vision to share, get your .cam now.
