First mention I saw of this one was in the DOORS section of The Sunday Times last week (12th Nov). Apparently David Bowie won an award at the annual Interactive Entertainment Awards presented by BAFTA. "Who BAFTA?"...some of you non-Brits may be asking:
"The British Academy of Film & Television Arts is the UK's leading organisation promoting and rewarding the best in film, television and interactive media. Renowned for its high- profile Award ceremonies covering Film, Television, Children's and Interactive Entertainment the Academy does much more than this?"
The Sunday Times described BowieNet thus: "Heavily design-orientated website that keeps even the most ardent Bowie fans up to date." Which, if I may be so bold, I guess me and my fellow employees can consider a pat on the back. A quick glance at the winners at the BAFTA site tells us that the actual award David won was "THE BERNERS-LEE AWARD for the best personal contribution to the Interactive Industry" in The Special Awards category.
So, well done again Mr B, BowieNet and all that sail in her!
