    I always find these stories intersting to read - I'm sure they present a very romaticised view of events though.

    Maybe I'm too conservative, but I wouldn't be giving my money to someone like Thiel to manage. Sounds like a gambler rather than an inventor. I hope he has good risk management in place for when his bets turn out to be wrong.
