About

Keith is a General Partner at Archimedes Labs LLC. Keith was the founder, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of RealNames Corporation. A sociologist by education and a technologist by nature, Keith married these two seemingly contradictory passions to form the RealNames Corporation. Based on the concept of building an invisible interface that enables individuals to use human language to navigate the Internet more freely and easily, RealNames became the leading provider of extended naming services and Web navigation platforms.

An agent of change, Keith has never been one to settle for the status quo. Born in Scarborough, England, a working class, seaside town, he made his way through grammar school, then the University and finally on to graduate school, despite—and often in spite of—his socioeconomic background and the misguided counsel of elders who didn’t think he could make it. During graduate school in the early 80’s, Keith proved that he could make it and then some, beginning a lengthy and successful entrepreneurial career devoted to applying the most sophisticated technologies to simplify business processes.
