I mentioned on 5X8 this morning that BP was going to provide a live video feed of the Gulf oil spill.
That feed — dubbed SpillCam — is now live. You can find it here, although it’s obvious the oil is spewing out of the earth faster than the bytes are traveling through the InterTubes.
BP has also put up a new video. It’s about how great the Louisiana oyster business is, and how helpful the oil company has been.
