Notice: After 25 years, Fogcam is shutting down forever at the end of August, 2019. Webdog and Danno thank our viewers and San Francisco State University for their support over the years. The Internet has changed dramatically since 1994, but Fogcam will always have a special place in its history.
Fogcam is in the news! SF is home to the world's oldest webcam. After 25 years, it's being switched off.
The San Francisco FogCam!
The world's oldest webcam. Live San Francisco views since 1994.
FogCam! sprang to life in 1994 as a student project in the Department of Instructional Technologies at San Francisco State University. Fogcam! is the oldest continuously operating webcam in the world.
Wikipedia confirms we are the oldest operating webcam. You can even see FogCam! on Wikipedia's list of oldest websites.
We've slightly changed campus locations a few times as necessary over the years, to prevent being shut down by the university.
Historically, the first webcam actually predated the web. The Trojan Room coffee pot cam at the University of Cambridge came online way back in 1991. It was retired in 2001.
