An often overlooked part of Prince’s legacy was his web presence: He was always on the cutting edge, and he won a Webby Award in 2006. Now, his official websites are being memorialized in The Prince Online Museum.
Sam Jennings, the director of the museum, told Billboard Billboard about the site, 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.”
Jennings also said that the project is maintained by people who worked with Prince on the original websites: “The Museum was built by the people who worked directly with Prince on these projects… We are the originators, we are the experts. It is a labor of love, no money has been exchanged. There will be no downloads sold and no membership fees required. But we do have working versions of almost all of Prince’s official websites.”
The following websites are featured in the museum:
-NPG Music Club v1 (2001), screen gallery
-TheDawn.com (1996), screen gallery
-Prince Interactive (1994), walkthrough
