Tech founders are already starring in reality TV shows having star-studded launch parties.Now they’re one step closer to being paparazzi-hounded celebrities.

Gizmodo has offered to pay for photos of Mark Zuckerberg; submitters will receive $20 for each new picture of the Facebook founder. Gizmodo will run the best non-staged shots in a labour Day feature called The Summer of Zuck.
