JenniCam Closing After 7+ Years

An anonymous Jenni fan writes "Details are sketchy, but apparently within the past few days, JenniCam has announced that it is closing permanently on New Year's Eve. Jenni Ringley has run the site for over 7 and a half years and was even voted more popular than Linus in a ZDNet poll. Of course, such constant exposure has had its downsides; she has received death threats in the past. Last chance to check out that Slashbox while her life is still online."

A Nice Cake Is Waiting For You tsarkon reports (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637234)

Actual email from Lori, an "ISD People Director," to Wal-Mart Associates:

From: xxxxxxxx@xxxxxxx.xxx
Sent: Saturday, November 22, 2003 10:13 AM
To: ISD All Information Systems
Subject: Inappropriate us of restrooms

Dead ISD Associates,

We continue to hear complaints about the DGTC restrooms being unavailable for use while they are being cleaned. Many of you have asked why the restrooms are cleaned so often during the day, or why we cannot leave them open for use while they are being cleaned. I think that it is important that I share with you the juvenile and disrespectful behavior of a few of your fellow associates so that you can understand why. This note will not be a pretty one, but hopefully you will be as outraged by this behavior as we have been, and help us to stop these few associates who's poor behavior is effecting so many others.

In recent weeks we have had associates clog the toilet bowls with nearly a whole roll of toilet tissue, urinate on the floor and walls, smear human waste on the walls, and leave human waste on the floor or in receptacles not meant for waste. One day an associate left a note taped to the stall which read "A nice cake is waiting for you". Inside the stall was a mound of waste left on top of the toilet. For a few days we tried to leave the restrooms open while the custodial associates were cleaning. We had several incidents where the custodial associates were shown disrespect. One associate used the urinal right next to where the custodian was cleaning and sprayed urine on the custodial associate's arm. We have a duty to provide an harassment free work environment for all associates, and could not continue to allow the restrooms be open during cleaning after these incidents took place. The general practice across the Home Office is to close the restrooms while they are being cleaned.

We don't know who is responsible for this behavior, but do know that peers holding each other accountable to do what is right is a core principle in our Wal-Mart Culture, and the only way we will stop this. Don't tolerate it if you happen to see or hear about behavior that you know is wrong. Let your manager or a member of the people group know if you are aware of who left the note regarding the "nice cake" in the bathroom (it happened to be the 1st floor men's bathroom at the blue wall.) This incident was clearly a malicious act.

Thank you for your support. We know that you will be as concerned as we are to have this happening in our building. This behavior demonstrates a lack of respect for our facilities crew and for all ISD Associates.

Eh, whatever. Until two minutes ago when I saw this, if I'd thought about who the first girl to get nekkid in front of a webcam was, I'd have thought of her just that way: "Who was that first chick who shat and screwed on camera for all of us?"
...and that's exactly how I'll think of her as soon as this thread is over and "jennicam" has once again faded mercifully from my mind.
A moment of one-handed typing, though, sure, I'll go for that.

Ah isn't it great ushering in the next generation? Doesn't it just make you feel old as dirt to hear someone who is not only ignorant of Jennicam, but also indignant of the idea that he should know about it.

I begin to understand the sad forlorn look in their eyes when my parents would wax poetic about something so banal as the A&P grocery stores and I'd indignantly grumble, "who cares?"

I expect now we'll be saying names like Robert Smith or Steven Morrissey and get quizzical looks, "um.. yeah... huh huh... aren't they like, the ice-cream guys or something... huh huh... huh"

Jeez

You whippersnappers, listen up:

Back when I was your age, we didn't have color screens. Back then, a gui was something you pulled out of your nose.

When I was your age, we loaded programs onto our computers using cassette tapes. We waited 20 minutes for the program to load up, and if we were lucky, it ran.

When I was your age, we didn't have C compilers that were free. We had BASIC, and if you were lucky, you had Pascal.

Back when I was your age, a 9800 baud was one thrilling piece of hardware.

We had computers that weighed over 100 pounds.

AND WE WERE GLAD.

Re:Am I the only one? (3, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637483)

Wow, aren't you old-school.

I remember when your only choice for programming was assembler - or if you were unlucky, straight machine code, which you translated from some pseudo-assembler notes on paper.

I remember when high-level languages were rubbished for being inefficient, and only of academic interest (the same way natural language programming is viewed now).

And I remember that back then we had twits saying "you youngsters are hopeless, in my day we used punch-cards".

But, it really does make you feel old to hear of someone not knowing what Jennicam is. I guess she's faded into insignificance, because all the teenagers who watched her with the hope of seeing her naked have grown up.

I've been thinking about this too..

Does anyone know if there's a website which bookmarks 'special' things/evolutions on the internet ? A sort of diary ?

When I got on the net (+10 years ago) it as first bitnet and there were rumours about the great shutdown (yes the whole net was shut down).

I do remember UK domains were .uk.co instead of .co.uk (maybe only for mail or through bitnet to internet gateways ? which they've also changed one point into time)
I remember this mozilla thingy coming out, wauw, it was better then gopher, but I disliked the grey background..
should've bought some domain names back then when they were almost free..


I'm sure a lot of people here will have similar memories of things changing/happening, but is it written down somewhere so the next generation or even just the people who came on the net after us can find anything about it ?

I've had a JenniCam Slashbox for years and as days went by I've seen her her progressively fatter and fatter until she became the queen of cellulite that she is today. I mean, you see her exercise on the cam and whatnot. I wonder what happened. She isn't old or anything. How do you let yourself go like that?

WARNING /. abuses collected AC data tsarkon (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637255)

WARNING, SLASHDOT NOW TIES AC COMMENTS WITH USER

When you are logged in,/. ties your user account to any Anonymous Coward postings you make... Thus they know who posted it. To demonstrate this:

  1. Get mod points.
  2. Post an AC comment while logged in
  3. Change your dynamic ip, clear all cookies
  4. Log back in and try to moderate your AC comment... you can't!!!

Please *log out* AND use another browser before making your AC comments.
Your UID is being tracked, it's not Anonymous. Lots of people post lots of things to Slashdot as AC only because they believe it is really anonymous - it isn't. They hunt "trolls" (non-karma whores and non-group thinking bots) down.

This is true. I used to be a bit more freestyle and witty AC and be a nice guy logged in [basically a karma whore]. After a short while, I could no longer moderate. Slashdot does brand AC posts with IP and then map them back to users. They lie about AC, AC doesn't exist if you re-use ip addresses.

Big brother is watching. So while I might be a "troll" a lot of the AC things I said were to protect myself from Slash-bot groupthink. They punished me for voicing my opinion freestyle.

They also revoke moderation FOREVER - $rtbl it is called, for any moderations of any post that have been secretly flagged annoying [Slashcode has hidden flags viewable by editors]. If you *EVER* mod up something an editor secretly marked annoying you NEVER moderate again, ever - ever even if your karma is capped.

Also, Slashdot uses the friends system to track "trolls." Mark a troll you find funny as a friend *bang* $rtbl never to moderate ever again. My real account had many many good friends who had good karma, and a few funny trolls later, no more moderation for that account. Again, Slashdot is spying on its users to make the people who find certain things funny uneligible to moderate. You will never moderate again if you are a friend of a "foe or freak" of an editor.

So AC is a scam here. Hitler-Malda screws AC posts in the ass. So now all you can do is go 100% AC, or , as they expect you to, KARMA WHORE. And it is so lame and unfair and probably illegal as they lie about anonymity.

Protect yourself. Try and use proxies or a super good second browser with proxies that you never log into such as Opera (which makes it very easy to delete all private data). Thank you.

Closing Jennicam? (5, Insightful)

xeno_gearz (533872) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637261)

On one hand, I could lament the "loss" of an internet mainstay of whom many of us were aware of. On the other hand, webcams have become so overdone. Every teenage girl and her best friend have one. Consequently, this is played out. So who cares? I'm sure "Jenny" has realized she has better things to do than pose on a webcam.

On the other hand, perhaps Jenny's subscriptions were dropping as creepy men were finding other girls' webcams to ogle. Maybe Jenny realized that her extended 15 minutes of fame are finally up. No disrespect though. She certainly seems to have garnered all the attention she could from a webcam.

"Remember the coffee cam? Now that was cool. Wasn't it at MIT?" Yep. It's all been downhill since then. The only thing that would have been worse than jennicam would have been if Adam Curry, fresh from freaking out and running away with MTV's domain name (if you remember that, you're a real web old timer) had started the first 24-hour nekkid cam, and he'd been the star.

JimBobJoe (2758) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637454)

On the other hand, webcams have become so overdone. Every teenage girl and her best friend have one.

And this is indeed true...and we can thank Jenni for that. I remember reading and finding the site in 1996 (which is when I first got broadband) and this was pretty hot shit at that time. Quite innovative--I believe I read about her in Wired. The fact that she lasted this long is actually amazing...and is a testament to her patience.

Not only did she invent this idea of camwhore (though camwhores usually perform on camera and eventually turn it off...at least, there won't be a good picture if they're not at the computer) Jenni wired her house with cameras (though that seems to have dropped off with time.)

This was of course a form of porn (figuratively and literally) and she might have even made a bit of profit in these years...much like the porn industry.

Camwhores still represent a troublesome frontier. 16 year old girls everywhere are taking off their clothes for free. Guys of all ages watch (and even if there weren't any watching, the girls would be doing it anyway.) That's gotta keep Ashcroft up late at night.

So how about it... (0)

Barbarian (9467) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637275)

She must be too old to be a cam girl now. Assuming she was at least 18 when she started it, she's gotta be at least 25 now.

Jennie is NOT a cam girl!!!

Jennie used the camera as a medium of self expression and speech, a means and method of recording her life for all to see on the internet. Jenniecam really was purely a social experiment.

She will be greatly missed.

I've heard of that cam, I think I even went there once when I was bored (and remained bored after I went there).

Watching someone else's life just doesn't appeal to me I guess...

I mean, if you're not someone important, why would I want to watch you?

Maybe not to you... (4, Insightful)

Channard (693317) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637373)

Watching someone else's life just doesn't appeal to me I guess...

Maybe not to you, but to Joe Public it does. In fact, the preponderance of webcams may have had something to do with the rise in popularity of reality TV. Here in the UK, we get Fame Academy, Big Brother, Celebrity Big Brother, and a slew of tedious TV shows that someone must be watching for them to stay on air. Maybe the majority of Slashdotters are just too cynical to be swayed by that sort of thing, but there are plenty of people who are convinced other peoples lives are somehow better than their own, and therefore worthy of viewing.

No she won't.

Some come, some go.
I have heard about her for the first time today and I don't care about using a computer to learn about somebody's empty life without sharing ideas at all.
Her position was to enter your life without letting you enter hers : you could watch but not be seen, not share, she just realized 7 years after that she have not had a positive effect on others during all that time.
It's high time she began sharing something instead of posing.
BTW, I have not rtfa nor clicked on her home page link.

A chick who expresses herself by showering, shitting and fucking on camera and sleeping nekkid. Sounds like a cam-girl to me. Go ahead and dress it up in whatever glorified way you want, but she's nothing more than some cam girl. The only exposure I had to her was a week long mpeg generated from every image that week that a friend had made. I found it very inane and couldn't imagine someone PAYING for access to that. Watching a chick be boring might be worth it if she were one of the hottest women in the world - or at least had an interesting job or homelife... or SOMETHING.

This is the first time jennicam has had two seconds of my mental energy in the last five years and it will probably be the last. I just don't care. I won't care. I sure as hell never DID care. She sucked every last bit of attention that she could out of the cam - and that's what web cam girls do. They're starved for attentionand need to share their every moment and every thought with every person that they can. This chick has been in every magazine, news paper and tv show imaginable and I just don't get it. I found the Cambridge coffee pot cam far more intellectually stimulating. More attractive and interesting, too.

Jumped the Shark... (4, Interesting)

abbamouse (469716) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637282)

...when she dissed her best friend who helped her move in next door by nabbing her fiance. Well, actually that was interesting but it turned into a long-term relationship. Dex just makes my skin crawl and the cam and journal got really boring after that. I mean, there's only so much gardening crap a person can read about. It was more interesting before she settled down. I think I've checked the cam like four times in the last year...

Re:Jumped the Shark... (5, Funny)

Re:Jumped the Shark... (4, Informative)

weave (48069) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637328)

True. Also, around that same time she moved from DC to CA and got a day job, so most of the day there was nothing to look at except the occasional cat.

I'm still going to miss her.

Re:Jumped the Shark... (2, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637386)

I watched the Jennicam for about twelve minutes and never went back. What's so interesting about a less-than-attractive (no offense) chick sitting around in front of her camera all day, sleeping half nude at night and occasionally bonking an ugly boyfriend? I can't believe there were actually suckers willing to pay for a subscription to that. Lame lame LAME.

I'm sure the ONLY reason she's closing it is that she's no longer raking in the dough. Otherwise you can be absolutely certain she would still milk it.

Cover Letter (-1, Flamebait)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637302)

Dear Sir or Nigger:

Having found your company on the web and seen that you are hiring jackbooted thugs, I would like to apply for consideration. I have read a lot about your company in the news lately and I really like what I see. There should be more buisinesses which will tramp over anyone in their way without a second thought. That is why this position interests me so much.
I feel I meet all the required skills of making baseless legal threats, harrassing the little people, rackateering, theft, lying and making ludicrious statements. As I have been a neo nazi for many years, I should fit in well with the companies policies and direction.
I do have one request, that if I am hired, I do not want to have to work with niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. No real preference in which I don't want to work with because they are all equally worthless. Other than that, I really have no other special needs.
I look foward to hearing back from you and hope to obtain a rewarding career with SCO corporation.

Sincerely,
Dr. Samuel Conway

Much more interesting camgirl (5, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637323)

While Jenni is mildly attractive, there are far more sexier and interesting camgirls out there. My favourite at the moment is Mercatur [mercatur.net] , a mid-twenties web designer.

Unlike Jenni, she is actually an interesting writer. She tackles wide-ranging and amusing subjects like why girls should only sleep with computer geeks (link [mercatur.net] ) to advice on how to give good head to a guy (link [mercatur.net] ).

She is also extremely cute. [mercatur.net] And single, I believe ;-)

bound to happen (1, Interesting)

CAIMLAS (41445) | more than 10 years ago | (#7637385)

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that it's been, well, 7 years. She undoubtedly started past the age of 18, so at the very least, she's 25. More likely, she's closer to 30. What'd you expect, an aging woman to display her body indefinately? I think not.

When was the last time you heard of a 30-year-old porn star? That's functionally what she is, though she doesn't make a habit of actively showing her body, and is more actively showing her mind - pr0n for geeks, I guess. She actively pimps the image of her body and life.

Re:bound to happen (-1)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637464)

You are quite deluded if you think that being over 30 has any significant effect on any reasonably attractive woman. (So in a way you're in for a nice surprise in a few years.) Maybe at like 45, but by that point either you love her for her mind or you don't have any other options.

the reason this is special (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#7637482)

is because she is the original cam girl. well probably not the first, but the first known to setup a cam, and let it run 24/7 showing everything she did. you could say she started a trend. i never thought she was good looking, but you got to give her credit. she gets an idea for a project, goes through with it, and keeps it going for 7 and a half years.

most of us dont mind being seen on cam, or on the web, but just imagine a cam on you 24/7 for 7 and a half years, in the bathroom/kitchen/bedroom/living room, all over the place. plus she probably made descent money doing it, not counting all the equipment people donated, and what not over the years. give the girl some credit.
