The March 1999 issue of .Net Magazine (UK) features an interview with DavidBowie on various topics such as MP3, the Internet, bootlegs, web design andthe millennium. Here are a few excerpts:
Bowie on BowieNet: "Even though it's synthetic, the feel of the community issuch an inherent part of what BowieNet is about. The idea that it's quirky,that you can pick up on these small autonomous portals and define your method,things that express how you are."
Bowie on Bowie: "I have found that there has never been one poll has everinfluenced me in what I do or what I buy.
Just a reminder, Eddie Izzard will be the next BowieNet Chat guest on Thursday, February 11th, 1999 at 2:00 p.m. PST, 5:00 p.m. EST.
Here is a sound clipof Eddie Izzard's 'Dressed To Kill' show LIVE from San Francisco.

Still Wanted: "If anyone has seen this painting (the original, not a framed print) and has a good idea where it is, ( I have an idea it is in the U.S.A. maybe EAST Coast) I will give a LARGE reward" -DB
This past Friday night we had our first "Open Chat Room" BowieNet chat with Mike Garson.Here are Mike's thoughts on the chat:
"I was very impressed with the Chat and the quality of the questions. Theinternet is a wonderful vehicle for creative expression and I am excited aboutthe future potential it represents.
I hope to broadcast live concerts from myhome at my website (www.nowmusic.net) in the very near future. Thank you toall who participated"
The BowieNet Cyber Song Contest "What's Really Happening", as we all know wasa smashing success. Entries came in from all over the world. Well it turnsout that various members of the legendary UK band - The Cure - submittedlyrics along with us mere mortals!
None of the boys won - or even made it tothe finals.....but we might send them a mousepad for their efforts. PS - Keepan eye out for a new Cure CD during 1999, with hopefully a tour to follow.
Check out the Cure at their website www.thecure.com.It's a great site!
