In Memoriam – Keith Alexander

Three years ago today, my friend Keith Alexander died in Brooklyn in a cycling accident. Keith was a lifelong Brooklyn resident and one of the original contributors to the NYC Metblog. I can hardly believe that it’s been three years already; it seems like just yesterday I was at a bar in Brooklyn with him, talking about music and technology and our crazy-ass friends and making the bartender’s life hell. I miss him a lot.

Today, BME News (site is not safe for work!) relaunched with a piece about Keith (interview link safe for work) as its lead story. Several people contributed their memories and thoughts about Keith, including me. Take a look, and if you knew him, share some memories of your own.

    I think about Keith everyday when I am on my bike. I never knew him, but he had such an impact on people’s lives that I know. When riding in the park and I start to get tired Keith always helps me keep riding.
