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.

The Jenni Cam website coincided with a rise in surveillance as a feature of popular culture, exemplified by the 1998 film The Truman Show and reality television programs such as Big Brother, and as a feature of contemporary art and new media art.

From a sociological point of view, Jenni Cam was an important early example of how the internet could create a cyborg subject by integrating human images with the internet.

After she reacted humorously to their taunts, Jenni Cam was hacked, and Ringley received death threats. Initially, the camera tended to be turned off during especially private moments, but eventually this custom was abandoned, and images were captured of Ringley engaging in sex. in 1998, she added webcams to cover the additional living space (four webcams captured images of her life).

In May 1997 Ringley graduated from Dickinson with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. She began charging for access to her site, allowing both paid and free access with the paid access updating the images more frequently than the free access.

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.

She added more pages to her website that included pictures of her cats and ferrets.

Her site was doing well as she stayed home and claimed her profession to be a "web designer" for her site.

Ringley's innovation was simply to allow others to view her daily activities. She did not wish to filter the events that were shown on her camera, so sometimes she was shown nude or engaging in sexual behavior, including sexual intercourse and masturbation.
