Bill Gross Does… Nanotech?

from the can't-wait-to-see-that-one dept

Wired News is running an interview with Bill Gross, a man who possibly has created more incredibly overhyped failed companies than anyone else in history. Amazingly (and despite numerous lawsuits trying to shut them down), Idealab is still going, and starting up a new company every quarter or so. My complaint with most Idealab companies was that they all seemed like “me too” plays of ideas that other companies were already working on. Certainly, there were some that were slightly more innovative, but the innovation was always drowned out by the pure hype. So, now, what is Bill Gross looking at starting? What’s being hyped most these days? That’s right, Idealab is going for biotech and nanotech startups.
