On June 5, David Bowie will be honored with a Webby Lifetime Achievement Award at the Annual Webby Awards ceremony, an international honor bestowed upon those who promote excellence on the Internet. The rock icon is honored for "pushing the boundaries of art and technology," the press release stated.
How so? The statement continues, "From BowieNet, the seminal Internet service provider he launched in 1998, to UltraStar, his digital media company that creates cutting edge online content for artists like The Rolling Stones, The Police, and Mariah Carey, to BowieArt, an innovative Web site that connects emerging visual artists with collectors worldwide," Bowie continues to innovate and adapt to an ever-changing technological climate.
