There’s nothing particularly memorable about Garrett Camp. Like most computer savants in Silicon Valley, he seems allergic to the suit and tie. But he doesn’t have a defining uniform either, like Mark Zuckerberg’s grey T-shirt or Steve Jobs’s black turtleneck. He’s got a wide and genuine grin, but he doesn’t exactly ooze charisma. There’s the hair – long and curly – but that’s not so rare in the world’s tech capital. His personal website gives a hint of his low-key nature. It features a thumbnail-sized headshot on a dark-grey background, and just 13 words: I’m an entrepreneur based in San Francisco. Founder @ Expa, Uber and StumbleUpon. @gmc.
