One of Britain’s best-known investors, Jim Mellon, talks to Merryn Somerset Webb about how Silicon Valley is set to turn all of our lives upside down, and picks the very best company to buy to benefit from this huge wave of disruption.Merryn Somerset Webb: I’m here today with Jim Mellon, investor – very good investor – and author. His new book, Fast Forward is just out, and we've written about it in the magazine, I think many of you may have it already, but today we’re going to talk a little bit more about some of the themes inside it.Before we do that, Jim, I just want to talk a little bit about the markets in general. We’re talking just as the rouble has really, really collapsed and you have some experience in Russia. I know that last month you told your readers to not invest in Russia, in fact not to touch it with a bargepole. Have you views changed at all, now that it’s really collapsed?
