Twitter, Ustream — how much is too much?  —  Way back in the mists of time, Internet-wise, there was Jenni-cam — a camera (and later, cameras) trained upon Jennifer Ringley 24 hours a day, regardless of what she was doing.  That seemed kind of weird, but after awhile it wasn't really that weird at all.
