Anyone remember Jennifer Ringley? She was the first person to become an internet celebrity when she decided to let her webcam take pictures every so often and just keep posting it to the internet. I vaguely remembered this and I never went to the site but it's amazing how different the internet was 20 years ago. A lot of people didn't see the value in it or thought it would be a fad. Of course beyond being peeping Tom's making money seemed to be the really big first push which I was on board joining eBay in the very early days. While there were tons of niche message boards the whole social media took about 10-15 years to really get off the ground in cyberspace. She was a pioneer for sure. She did that for 7 years before dropping off the internet just before youtube and myspace would soon revolutionalize the kind of thing she did.
