Maybe to give some form -- there's a (currently nonfunctional) Tundra cam in
the Rockies that I used to access from time to time.  The camera is in a
fixed position, but with controls for zoom and XY camera angle.  freely
viewable but controlled by users in a queue.  A cool project that might give
this one a more specific form.

Are there other projects to draw elements and inspiration from?

Maybe folks at Noisebridge would enjoy working on things like front end
chrome, security, and a suitable backend/interface for  domain/site, then
move on to scheduling the prerequisite McHawking drive-a-thon, and
telepresence Brulee class that was planned for and forgotten a year and a
half back.
