Geek thing of the week : Ringing in 2011 from abroad

Sorry about this I just realized it’s almost the end of Tuesday here in Paris, so I only have a bit of time left for my Tuesday geek post, but I just discovered how I CAN watch the ball drop over Times Square — and no, not by finding the one bar in Paris that will be showing it at 6 am

It’s the New Year’s Eve Earthcam

For those of you that didn’t know, the first ball lowering at One Times Square was  on December 31, 1907 and is now seen via satellite by more than one billion people each year.

This time, for the first time ever, it’s going to be in 3D😀

BONUS : I spent a little more time looking at what Earthcam actually is and why they would be so gracious as to host this most excellent streaming, and I discovered that it’s a huge site with thousands of live webcam sites.

They proposed a list of the Top 25 webcams ..where I found my happiness in a live puppycam featuring a seeing guide dog puppy’s playpen !

Happy new year !!!
