TNBT in tech: Will.i.am hooks up with Simon Cowell for ‘X Factor for Tech’

Will.i.am – Intel’s director of creative innovation, NASA’s favourite music dude and coffee.paper.trend’s Man of the Year – said that he’s working with the reality TV mogul on a project to find the next big technology entrepreneur.

“It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves — whether that’s in science or mathematics.” Will.i.am

No details are available yet, but a brave/commendable move if it goes ahead.

There will definitely be some vocal critics, but I think it’s a good idea to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship and see how the reality TV format fares with something more substantial than ‘the search for fame’.
