Description (in English): 

Online Caroline is a story told to and, importantly, with its reader. It's built around a database that collects the information you feed it as you read. The reader answers questions about him or herself and the program uses that information to generate personalised emails from Caroline. When you visit Caroline's web site the version you see depends on how much of the story you've read. Each day the reader is limited to one episode consisting of an email and the appropriate version of the web site. In addition to the daily webcam segment, the web site regularly updated diary section similar to a web diary or personal home page. It takes a minimum of 24 days to experience the drama.
