Jennicam reports:

JENNIFER Ringley was the first person to broadcast her life online.

In 1996, the 19-year-old bought a webcam and set it up in her room to take a photo every 15 minutes and post it to her website: JenniCam.

Her experiment offered the world a glimpse into our digital future long before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the Kardashians.

I remember Jennicam. 1996 was the year I first went online. Hadn’t thought of the site for a long long time, but it was the pioneer of the “sharing” which was to come.

Who else remembers Jennicam? Did you watch it often? I would check it out occasionally, but wasn’t a regular.
