Trend to watch: geek celebrities

Paris Hilton, pack your Gucci bags; Britney Spears, eat your heart out: here come the tech geek celebrities.

The likes of Paris and Britney are out, Steve and Sergei are the new chic. As technology becomes a greater part of our daily lives, tech geeks, the bringers of these blessings, are definitely gaining media visibility. Admittedly there are still some ups and downs and some geek foremen might never get the hang of it, but high tech rockstars like Jobs and Brin certainly fit the bill.

Especially Steve 'Reality Distortion Field' Jobs shows the way in which tomorrow's celebrities will try to manifest themselves. Rather than bumbling across the flickering screen like blonde little Paris, they'll distinguish themselves through meticulously prepared, glitzy software demos.
