Tour the state with ’Net cams

Everything moves faster on the Internet, so the cliche about everybody getting 15 minutes of fame is chopped down to 10 minutes on the 'Net.

That's because the live digital and video cameras mounted around the state are beaming pictures around the globe with updates every 10 minutes.

Here's a quick tour of Hawaii's Internet cams:

Aloha Tower via the Hawaiian Eye at Planet Hawaii, http://planet-hawaii.com/ph/he.html.

Manoa Valley, thanks to the University of Hawaii's Satellite Oceanography Laboratory at http://satftp.soest.hawaii.edu/satlab/manoa.html.

The UH also provides views of Sunset Beach at http://satftp.soest.hawaii.edu/satlab/sunset.html and Iao Valley on Maui at http://satftp.soest.hawaii.edu/satlab/kahului.html.

Lahaina on Maui is also visible at http://www.mauigateway.com/~video. Other Maui locations include: http://www.maui.net/~bob/windcam.html and http://www.synchromic.com/cam.html.

The Big Island offers a view of Mauna Loa through the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hilo at http://mloserv.mlo.hawaii.gov/default.html.

When you return to Honolulu, stop by the Hawaii convention center to watch the construction at http://www.visit.hawaii.org/hconv/develope.html.

Finally, you might want to stop by the Internet C@fe at;method=push;.

"Home on the Web" is a weekly Friday feature of the Star-Bulletin.
