I'd never heard of Michael Moritz before I read this BBC NEWS report. He's from Penylan in Cardiff originally. Like what I am as Ernie Wise would say.

The old cropped photo in the report seems to imply that he is some sort of Howard Hughes recluse.

I googled him however and found his page on the sequoia capital website. That's got an up to date photo and his email address. How difficult could it be for the BBC to find that?
