Startups are in these days…I guess. Yesterday The Sun and a bunch of other blogs and news sources announced that Simon Cowell and Will.i.am have joined forces to do The X Factor for Tech. Will.i.am said, “We’re working on a project called X Factor for Tech — and it’s going to be out of this world….Singing and performance create a couple of jobs. But this will create lots. It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves — whether that’s in science or mathematics.”
So basically they’re claiming to try to find the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg…problem is that next Bill or Mark is too busy coding in their bedroom/dorm room to do a reality show…but would make an interesting show for sure!
I think there is definitely a market for this as I’m doing a docu about startups as we speak…so I guess we’ll know how well this subject does come November.
