of the Week
The birth of Lucy's child signaled a personal
paradigm shift in more ways than one. Having been a photography
professional since high school, she now set out to expand her budding
interest in computers by delving into graphic design.
After joining a friend's graphics business, she learned everything
about typesetting and graphic arts. As for many in the same field,
the work naturally led her to Web site development. She was excited
and eager to learn about the Web and taught herself everything by
reading source code. Soon after, she started her own freelance Web
is her personal pride and joy. Using a Webcam, Lucy photographs
her life and presents it to the world in real time. She has met
tons of interesting friends because of the site, which Lucy says
is a difficult thing to do for any busy single parent like her.

To change myself into a fly and hang out in the corner on the wall.
