Watch the 580 Get Rebuilt -- Very Slowly



Did you know that KRON 4 has set up an "I-580 Connector Cam" so you can watch the CalTrans guys put the freeway back together again? It's a cool idea, but since the image only updates every few seconds, and since there isn't always a lot of heavy machinery in action, it's a little dull to watch -- every now and then you get an onscreen flicker from a car passing by or a dude in an orange vest walking through the shot. You know what would be awesome, KRON 4? Once the repair is complete, you could take all this footage and speed it up into a really great-looking time-lapse sequence! Then again, given that a Web page devoted to watching cheese age is one of the hottest Internet memes out there right now, maybe you're on to something.
