Peter Thiel is today known as one of the most successful and colorful venture capitalists in Silicon Valley.

He came to fame and fortune by co-founding PayPal and then as an early investor in Facebook and is now is trying to stop aging and death, find technologies that would let people live forever, and encouraging smart young people to skip college and start companies instead. (He's a famously outspoken libertarian.)

If you take every classic tale of about Silicon Valley and combine them into one human being, you'd get Peter Thiel.
