    The convergence between Hollywood and Silicon Valley is becoming more apparent in a number of ways.

    Firstly, celebrities are investing in technology startups. Actor Leonardo Dicaprio is the latest celeb who joins Ashton Kutcher, Lady Gaga, MC Hammer and Justin Bieber investing in startups. Secondly, Hollywood is getting its content from Silicon Valley in the form of films like The Social Network and pending films; Wikileaks -The Movie and the film about Steve Jobs. Thirdly, celebrities like Deal or No Deal host and now America’s Got Talent Judge Howie Mandel are using tools being built in Silicon Valley to communicate with their fan base.
