“Keith, I know what you are thinking. Why am I doing this? You see, when I moved out from Boston. I was a rookie to Silicon Valley and somebody did it for me. That was Lou Platt, the former CEO of HP. And he told me, the reason why he was doing it was because somebody did it for him. So Keith, I don’t ask for anything in return. I just want you to do it for the next guy. And that is the magic of Silicon Valley.”
