Why Prii and private planes? Several years ago, after a mad jaunt down the 280 in my Prius, Charlie and I were meeting with a prominent  Sand Hill Road venture capitalist (The purpose of the meeting remains unclear). The discussion turned to greentech, and I asked the VC whether he had a Prius. He responded that he did not, and that everyone he knew who drove a Prius also had a private jet- a troubling hypocrisy. Charlie began discussing the net present value of children, and  there was no turning back.
