Tumblr creator David Karp could afford an ostentatious lifestyle, but chooses one more in-line with the minimalist service that's built him a net worth of more than $200 million.

I don't have many clothes," Karp tells Forbes. "It's my Jason Bourne or James Bond fantasy, wanting to be perfectly mobile."
