Kiwi Webcam Man Set To Unplug Today

Webcam Man Set To Unplug Today

More than 120,000 people have logged on to check out New Zealand's first 24 hour webcam voyeuristic internet site.

Fans of the site have been able to log onto www.filtered.co.nz to watch a man live in an Akl CBD window for the past 6 days. Our subject has experienced a series of emotions, from missing the things he enjoys daily through to copying with isolation. He's also had to deal with the knowledge that the outside world is looking in, combined with those making it obvious they're judging him and the situation on the outside world.

Online viewers have come from all over the world and New Zealand to watch a man exist in this created space and its become clear that he's gained a loyal following as the week has progressed.

Riding on the back of the Big Brother phenomenon, the man in the window has been the first voyeuristic campaign to hit New Zealand and the response to it has succeeded all expectations. The power of word-of-mouth and on-line communities has proven that New Zealanders are just as connected virtually as any of our overseas counterparts.

Tomorrow will be his final day broadcasting live from the window. He will be available for one-on-one, face-to-face or phone interviews during his last hours in the space.
