Inside the mind of a crazy (rich) entrepreneur

Scott Jones thinks up more ideas in a month than most folks do in a lifetime. Find out how he makes them pay. Photographs by Chris Mueller/Redux.

Jones likes to bike as he scans data from eight computer screens.
There's no desk in Jones's office. Instead, he designed a recumbent bike that seats him in front of eight flat-panel monitors, all connected to a CPU. The bike allows him to exercise while he works and think more creatively by having many documents and websites visible simultaneously. Jones has been known to bike for three hours at a time, sweat streaming, while he works. "I've done board meetings there with a phone, and people wonder why I'm panting," he notes.
