Vanity Fair names Thiel a rising star


When it comes to the ever-growing universe of "People to Watch" lists from popular magazines, it's sometimes the individuals who don't make the list that are most notable. The latest such ranking from Vanity Fair was interesting as only two hedge fund names - SAC's Steve Cohen (99) and Paulson & Co's John Paulson (91) - made the list. But just below the radar, the magazine singled out Clarium Capital's Peter Thiel as a "someone to watch."
