After a long sabattical from his Twitter account, Kanye West returned to the internet last night with a flurry of thoughts in 140 characters or less. The big news, he is forming a new company, DONDA. It’s not entirely clear what the mission of the company is, but it seems like the tech set can get involved:
I am assembling a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts, app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist, doctors, scientist,teachers. DONDA will be comprised of over 22 divisions with a goal to make products and experiences that people want and can afford. I want to put creatives in a room together with like minds that are all waaaay doper than me. We want to help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel… To dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need.. To marry our wants and needs.
Sounds like somebody enjoyed the Steve Jobs biography. And hey, Dr. Dre is making a killing on his high end headphones.
App guys (mobile developers) and tech guys (programmers) can apply at - contactDONDA@gmail.com
UPDATE: Everyone is getting in on this tech thing. Mayor Bloomberg is apparently learning to code. Wait…didn’t he build a big tech company already?
P.S. You can get a taste for what Kanye is working on from this picture he sent out during his DONDA pitch last night. Living room of the future!
