When asked to write about David Bowie, I initially couldn’t think of what to write. I wasn’t a fan. I liked his pop days with Nile Rodgers the best, and his duets. Oh, and his “Labyrinth” movie, but let’s put that aside. But, I was too young for his Ziggy Stardust days, and his experimental sound later, was simply not my thing.
Later, I’d heard he hated his pop era, and that left me with a bit of weird impression about him. There’s always something bitter sweet about an artist saying they didn’t like what they were doing when they were the most popular.
When I started to think about him as blog topic, the only thing that really came to mind, was his innovativeness when it came to the Internet. In the middle of the 90s, I started a web design company. So I was always interested in Bowie when I heard about him running an ISP.
