Among the countless tributes to David Bowie, this one particularly struck me. It comes perhaps as no surprise that Bowie, who was always ahead of his time when it came to art, would also be when it comes to technology. He created BowieNet in the 1990s, an online community for his fans, at a time when this was something still unheard of.

Click through the link below to see his 1999 interview with Paxman, where the latter seems quite unconvinced about Bowie's internet enthusiasm.

BowieNet might seem old hat today, but many B2B companies would do well to learn from his example by finding innovative ways to break down barriers between themselves and their community.
