All Your Famous People Belong To Us

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the October 14th, 2006

What does a 24-year-old physics student have to do with running celebrity-focused ajax-yummy site Kevo? GETV flew all the way to Los Angeles to find out. We met up with late-blooming geekstar Will Jessup (he discovered his Java genius only a few years ago) and asked him to show us his very LA-LA-land labor of love. Basically, Will wants to create the end-all source of information on all famous people in the whole universe. Kevo is like wikipedia for celebrities but with features of digg and none of those pesky wikipedia problems where anyone can edit anything — users have to earn karma points and can’t edit pages pages that are worth more points than they have earned so far. Get it? I know, even Will admits he may be too brilliant for his own good, but we discourage anyone from dumbing themselves down just to be understood. That’s what we’re here for.
