However, 7 years later, Jennifer decided to close their live sites, completely disappeared from the Internet .

in the era of social media prosperity and instant messaging, it is nothing new. For now the network users, the "look at Jeanne" site is actually quite boring: a granular, stationary black and white images appear on the site, after 15 minutes, another black and white screen and then appear.
but don't forget, Jennifer was playing live 20 years ago. At that time, have access to the Internet to dial-up connection and time charges, a better "a few minutes to load out, we are not online shopping or into the net.

now it seems, this live and nothing special. But if you have been sitting in front of the computer to watch, you can connect the life of Jennifer: she sat on the bed wearing boots, this is going out; she was wearing a vest and pants sitting in front of the computer, that will stay in the dormitory chat online.

"look at Jeanne" to Jennifer brought unprecedented fame. 1998, the famous American talk show host David Letterman interview with Jennifer. Not only is Letterman, she has also been reported by many newspapers and magazines as a special subject. At that time, there was not a variety of television shows, a young grassroots girl, millions of people can be logged on to the same site, has created a history.

Until she and her boyfriend's close move into the mirror, so curious into a condemnation, people began to accuse her of narcissism and exposure. "My boyfriend and I first kiss in front of the camera, the website because too much traffic paralyzed instantly, then I heard the computer beep sounds like. He didn't want to come back to my room after he realized he had a kiss on his website. No one wants to appear on the screen, and no one wants to come to my room. "Why doesn't
avoid these scenes of exposure and intimacy? Jennifer said that the other side of the room to turn off the camera is very troublesome, she did not want to make this move to destroy the atmosphere of the moment.
7 years after the closure of the site
that a few years, Jennifer has been the object of online discussion, debate and analysis. Until one day after 7 years, she closed the site.
she was the first to reveal to the public personal life people, first because in front of the camera and the ordinary people become famous, first with completely unfamiliar users to share intimate and vulnerable moments of the people...... Why did it disappear under the name of
after graduating from University, Jennifer moved to Washington, in a company to do web design. Moving from the dorm to the apartment, she had more space to record. A "look at Jeanne" super fans sent her a bunch of cameras, Jennifer put them all installed into the new home and office, continue to live.
