  1. Om,
    Keith was a personal friend and neighbor of mine. Your report on his death struck the most perfect balance of his business persona. I and the rest of those who knew him well will miss him.

  2. I met Keith when I joined one of his portfolio companies in 2003, and saw him regularly even after moving on to other things. I was immediately impressed by his intelligence and insight, and charmed by his wit and passion. His idea of balance meant going full bore at several seemingly unrelated things – but they all came together and informed one another, and made him a whole person. His friends and associates are acutely aware of the gap he leaves in our lives, and I believe our entire industry will feel it too.

  3. I met Keith in Business School where we collaborated on our senior thesis. He loved poring over every detail while sipping port (great taste even then). I enjoyed working with him then as he seemed to be the only calm and sane person I met in B school.
    My heart goes out to his family.
