Yahoo! Internet Life is not only naming DB their 'Online Pioneer' for the year 2000, but they have a feature story on DB on their web page. The story (which was first published a year ago) is not just any feature, but a 7 page one-on-one interview with DB on a variety of subjects, most especially, the internet. Here is a snippet:
It seems David Bowie wants to talk about his work. Not his music--although there's plenty of it, given that the chameleonic British rocker has spent the last 30 years creating such classic pop songs as "Fame," "Let's Dance," and "Ziggy Stardust." Not his movie roles--althoughthere are plenty, ranging from his chilly star turn in Nicolas Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth to smaller parts in The Last Temptation ofChrist and Basquiat. These days, when Bowie says "work," he means "network"--and specifically, he means BowieNet, his newborn boutique Internet service provider (ISP) and music community. Bowie-as-rock-star has evolved into Bowie-as-wired-entrepreneur, able to talk at length on such topics as chat rooms, wearable computers, and the digital-music controversy.
