<b>Jennifer Ringley: "JenniCam"</b> <br> For a girl who used to be on-camera around the clock, Jennifer Ringley has done a swell job of disappearing from the public eye. The now-all-grown-up Jenni shot into the spotlight in 1996 when her <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JenniCam" target="_blank">JenniCam</a> Web site introduced the then-unusual concept of a 24-7 Webcam. Still images captured Ringley in any activity &#8212; sitting, reading, having sex &#8212; with shots taken and updated every 3 minutes. The saga lasted for seven years.<br> Since <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/internet/12/10/jenni.cam.reut/" target="_blank">shutting down the cam</a> in 2003, Ringley has returned to private life in Northern California &#8212; either as a <a href="http://hitsusa.com/blog/61/jennicam/" target="_blank">social services worker</a> or as a <a href="http://www.migraineblog.com/migraine_blog/2007/12/magnums-icon-gi.html" target="_blank">computer programmer</a>, depending on whom you ask. She shuns media attention, though, and rarely pops up in formal interviews.<br> Ah, how we miss her.
