Remember...



when so many whined that amazon.com "hasn't made a profit yet" blah blah blah?

Bezos was subject to intense criticism then.  Well look who's still standing.  Bezos was hanging in with a long-term vision while his legion of critics / analysts were screaming for short term profits.  Any kind of profit!

I don't know much about the man, but he appears to be a brilliant entrepreneur with a company that is difficult for me not to love.  And I'm not alone.  As much as I damn covet an iPad, I will probably end up with a larger Kindle Fire simply because it has 4g for a one time $50 charge for its lifetime.  What does Apple charge for its?  $40-50 bucks a month?  And is it really true (still!) that iPad users can see nothing Flash-based on that game-changing device?  WTF?  How did that happen?

All this to say.  Check out this article, especially his "Two-Pizza Rule."  Sounds about right to me.

My CEO can handle one and his CRO can handle the other I'd bet.  For now...
