Now the former Alltuition team works out of the Social+Capital office on a new company, Brilliant. It’s a brainchild of Palihapitiya’s, and he moved them from Chicago to Palo Alto to start it. Set to launch this fall, Brilliant is a global online talent registry where bright kids, whether in the slums of Lagos or rural Pakistan, can take tests and post profiles and draw the attention of recruiters at Western universities and multinational corporations. “We are creating a product that basically identifies the world’s smartest kids,” says Palihapitiya.

Am I the only one who reads that last line as:

"We identify the world's smartest kids [so we can exploit them]."

Ahh, you life in silicon valley. :) No surprises there.

Do you mean that a lot of people in Silicon Valley are trying to exploit the world's smartest kids?
