Most Interesting Article I Read This Week
I grew up in the 70s and David Bowie was a huge part of it. So I was very sad when I learned of his death on Monday morning. Like many of my friends I spent most of Monday and portions of Tuesday (and let’s be honest, Wednesday, Thursday, and yes, today…) watching videos of Bowie singing a-capella with Freddie Mercury and crying as I listen to Blackstar. But one of the articles I found most interesting was one on the BBC: David Bowie: The internet pioneer. I remember Bowienet, although I was not a member. I remember when he released “Telling Lies” as a downloadable single. But I didn’t realize how much he was involved in the early Internet. He was a man ahead of his time. David Bowie—RIP
He will be missed.
