The most extraordinary thing about Jennifer Ringley was how ordinary she was. She seemed absolutely unremarkable. But as one of the first web-cam operators, she matter-of-factly pioneered a new approach to privacy.

After eight years on the web, Jenni was like an old friend - while the experiment still remained provocative. When she slept with her neighbor's fiance, some audience members wondered if one factor was the audience - the fascination-with-Jenni that her (paying) viewership implied. Was there a license for drama - even an imperative?

Real life became the most abstract drama of all, leaving audiences without answers, only their own interpretations. And one final piece of data. Three years after the "stolen boyfriend" incident, Jenni pulled the plug on the camera, the boyfriend and she still together.
