    just caught this:

    http://webvideoreport.com/news/#000577

    i guess youtube and blogger has pulled her content already. blogspot has her blog now:

    http://90-day-jane.blogspot.com/

    discuss.

    EDIT: apparently, this was an "art project."

    Some people will do anything to be on the news. The sad thing is that there will probably be a lot of disappointed viewers if she doesn't go through with it in the end...

    Neither depressed nor seeking attention.

    I call BS. If you're not seeking attention, then you don't post it on the internet. If you're not depressed, you don't commit suicide! (Well, I suppose you could be just plain nuts, not necessarily depressed.)

    When I click on one of the "Youtube" video links it tries to install an ActiveX .exe. I didn't get the pr0n popup though.

    And even as "art" it fails IMO.

    It's no bother here, as this is the interwebs after all. Same thing happens in Safari and Firefox btw.

    I found her writing to very bland and uninteresting.

    Perhaps that's the reason?

    It will be hilarious when she is hauled to the looney bin for awhile, if this is all a joke.

    Can we buy tickets to the suicide?

    When somebody pulls a stunt like this, disappointed fans are all she will leave.

    Everyone's an individual, and whether that's the reason she wants to do it or not, does not matter to me. I'm just a part of the viewing public.

    I'd feel quite disappointed if she didn't pull a Wile E. Coyote on us and pancake herself.

    attention seeking or not, its what she has now.

    where does this go?
    my question: why do people care?

    That's both horrible and funny. Exactly the kinda viral fame the interwebbernets can produce.

    So the deal is the 90 day jane persona was an art project - right? I just tried to find the blog, and it appears to be gone.

    This is deplorable. YouTube should disable her account immediately so she can't get the attention she seeks. Clearly she is mentally ill and needs to seek treatment urgently.

    We have a saying in the 911 business -- the ones who really want to kill themselves just go out and do it, and we never hear about it until the deed is done. The ones who really have no intention of doing it talk about it all the time.

    She appears to have indicated in the blog that it was reality but her "art".

    She got her semi-15 mins, I guess.

    Did ANYBODY read her final blog post? I thought that it was terribly insightful and spoke volumes that nobody publicly offered help, but that many people did through private e-mails. She was quite frank that she did not expect it to garner as much attention as it did, and that when she found out how much attention she was getting, she felt that she could not continue the piece as originally planned. If you haven't read it, it's worth a read.

    To call her an attention whore or mentally ill is disingenuous. She was trying to make a point and judging from the response she got, she made her point quite well.

    Read her final post; it's well worth it and quite insightful.
