Prince Online Museum launches to celebrate singer's online presence

The Prince Online Museum (http://princeonlinemuseum.com) has been launched, allowing fans to explore Prince’s official websites – and there are quite a few of them – over the years.

The site features a timeline of the various websites, but it’s also possible to read a little more about a chosen site, including some words from the developers and creators, and even access a version of the site.

Sam Jennings, director of the Prince Online Museum, told Billboard that the museum is “an archive of that work and a reminder of everything he accomplished as an independent artist with the support of his vibrant and dedicated online community.”

“We launch with 12 of Prince's most popular sites, but over 20 years online, Prince launched nearly 20 different websites, maintained a dozen different social media presences, participated in countless online chats and directly connected with fans around the world,” he added.
