Young Turn to Web Sites Without Rules.

Popular Web sites like YouTube and MySpace have hired the equivalent of 
school hallway monitors to police what visitors to their sites can see 
and do by cracking down on piracy and depictions of nudity and violence.

So where do the young thrill-seekers go?

Increasingly, to new Web sites like Stickam.com, which is building a 
business by going where others fear to tread: into the realm of 
unfiltered live broadcasts from Web cameras.

The site combines elements of more popular sites, but with a twist. In 
addition to designing their own pages and uploading video clips, its 
users broadcast live video of themselves and conduct face-to-face video 
chats with other users, often from their bedrooms and all without 
monitoring by any of Stickam’s 35 employees.
