Reality TV for Silicon Valley

A new Bravo series hopes to capture the tech mecca’s creative buzz.

If wealthy housewives can have reality shows, why can’t Silicon Valley geeks? said David Streitfeld in The New York Times. A new Bravo series, now being filmed, hopes to capture the tech mecca’s creative buzz. But the industry “is not quite ready for its close-up.” Many valley residents are concerned that the show might turn the area “into a laughingstock,” and they may be right. “Trust me, enough people in this industry make laughingstocks of themselves,” said Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook’s founder and a series executive producer. The show features “hard-partying youngsters” vying for “instant success and untold riches.” Kim Taylor, who says she’s still “figuring out” her start-up’s mission, summed up the mood. “Silicon Valley is high school, but it’s only the smart kids and everyone has a lot of money,” she said.
