Rock idol David Bowie's interest in computers - he is setting up his own Internet provider service - is turning into an obsession.

At the launch this week of a vodka ad, created by controversial artist Damien Hirst, 51-year-old Bowie - part-time Bermuda resident - spent the evening of Notting Hill's Pharmacy restaurant taking photographs of fellow partygoers.

Explains the computer freak formerly known as Ziggy Stardust: "I'm going home to put them onto my web page. I download everything at midnight."

"I take pictures with a digital camera, and it takes only a couple of seconds to put them on my computer."

To what purpose? "It's like a daily diary," Bowie says. "But instead of just one reader, everyone can see what I am doing."
