While Bill is one of the more thoughtful VCs in the valley, I resent the fact that he turned on Travis Kalanick (founder of Uber). There was a time where Bill's team was practically begging to invest in Uber, but when times got tough they made the huge mistake of firing the founder and brains behind the business, Travis Kalanick, from the company.

There will be books written about this someday as it closely resembles what happened at Apple years ago when Steve Jobs was fired for some corporate stiff. You cannot kick the founder out of a unicorn like Uber and expect it to go on and continue to innovate at the same pace it did with the founder there. Travis is a maverick, just like the tool Uber is that he created.
