And more importantly, owner of the Seattle Seahawks. And also the Portland Trailblazers. He was a fabulous owner for the Seahawks. A really respected owner among a sea of tolerated owners.

This guys list of accomplishments (not just in business but in sport/technology/community/arts) is VERY impressive. Looked like he had a massive heart for outreach and he will be missed.

Agree, that one is going to be a tough act to follow. Hopefully the Seahawks don't end up in the hands of another Ken Behring.

That's too bad. While Microsoft is better known for Gates' and Ballmer's leadership, it was Allen's business acumen that got them out of the garage in the early days. Also one of the few tech sector entrepreneurs who managed to turn his illiquid pile of startup stock into a formidable empire in its own right.
