Silicon Valley Reality Show

Finally, a reality show I might actually watch. Mark Zuckerberg's sister, Randi, is one of the co-producers of  this new show about to hit Bravo. The premise is simple. "Silicon Valley" will chronicle the lives of young local entrepreneurs that aspire to become the next Steve Jobs, Larry Page / Sergey Brin, or Mark Zuckerberg. I am hoping this will be far more interesting than watching bored housewives spend their husbands' money or cooking competitions to see who can make the best catfish ice cream.

It's about time we have a reality show about something that actually matters. Entrepreneurs are the people that have the ability to literally change the world. The only way to permanently increase the standard of living across the globe is through innovation. Anything else is just redistributing money from one party to another. Fortunately for us, we happen to be right in the heart of innovation and finally there is going to be a TV show to share with the world exactly how exciting our entrepreneurial ecosystem can be.

  1. To be fair, a lot of those women are successful on their own merits. I'm admitting to watching a lot of the Bravo Housewives shows, but I'd say a fair share of them actually work rather than "spend their husbands money". Just saying! Sure, the shows like to perpetuate the catty, bitchy, gossiping stereotypes that people like to think -all- women are, but I just like pointing out the one positive aspect of the shows... :S
