kanye west Kanye West Now Hiring App Guys and Tech Guys for New Company: DONDA

I get computers puting.

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  –

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?

    Everybody has the right to dream.  But one thing that Steven Jobs
    wouldn’t have done is:  taking the microphone from a young and talented
    singer/song writer, ready to receive a major award and ruin her most
    important moment, replacing it with a horrendous speach, charged, as
    usual, with racial contents and hate.  That’s the Kanye West I know,
    besides a bunch of his words, directed to enrage his audience, mainly
    made of uneducated people, that celebrate his mostly ill thoughts.  Talking is cheap,  doing and succeed is hard.
