Jennifer Ringley: "JenniCam"
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 JenniCam Web site introduced the then-unusual concept of a 24-7 Webcam. Still images captured Ringley in any activity — sitting, reading, having sex — with shots taken and updated every 3 minutes. The saga lasted for seven years.
Since shutting down the cam in 2003, Ringley has returned to private life in Northern California — either as a social services worker or as a computer programmer, depending on whom you ask. She shuns media attention, though, and rarely pops up in formal interviews.
Ah, how we miss her.
