Ferriss is known to many as the author of bestsellers such as the "The 4-Hour Body." Much lesser known is his constant activity in the tech world. Besides serving as an advisor to startups such as Uber and the note-syncing app Evernote, he has also invested in Twitter and the sharing tool Posterous. Recent memorable Tweet: "I have to assume 50% of what both candidates say is not what they believe. Seems impossible to predict post-election behavior :("
