Unlike later for-profit webcam services, Sources stated that Jenni Cam received over 100 million visitors weekly.
Nate Lanxon of CNET said "remember this is 1996 and the Web as we know it now had barely lost its virginity, let alone given birth to the God-child we know as the modern Internet." On April 3, 1996, during her junior year at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the 19-year-old Ringley installed a webcam in her college dorm room, and provided images from that cam on a webpage.
Jenni Cam was one of the first web sites that continuously and voluntarily surveyed a private life.
Her first webcam contained only black-and-white images of her in the dorm room.
They serve dinner most evenings and on weekends there are DJ's and occasional live bands. Pacific Park is a place in Westerpark, that is very hard to describe.
At the end of the interview, and even after having been corrected once, Letterman plugged the site as instead of the correct (Ringley owned both and Jennicam.org).
People visiting the previously non-existent found a pornographic site with the greeting, "Thanks Dave".
As Ringley attracted a following both on and off the Internet, more than 100 media outlets from The Wall Street Journal to Modern Ferret ran features.
Ringley owned several ferrets and Modern Ferret featured Jenni and one of her pets on the front cover.
