Jeff Bezos Revealed: Building Amazon One Box at a Time - YouTube
Not in Silicon Valley. Not inside the bubble. was not inside the bubble when it imploded. // can not rest on your laurels. can not stop for a second innovating. even trying hard to disrupt yourself (Kindle) and capture the market (monopsony - in book and ebook market and w audible the audiobook market). and taking out your partners (delivery firms) with building very close to the city their warehouses. also, locking in customers with Amazon Prime, and convenience one click order. and having the verything store. Amazon A9 - its search engine could be the one of the top 5 search engines in the world. Google, YouTube, ... Amazon? or Bing/Yahoo in between? // Nobody can compete on price with Amazon with popular items! they discount popular items to attract (loss leader items). making it up all the other items of the long tail // run in late with lots of antitrust. // all encompassing (encapsulating every decision) motto: obsessing over customer & inventing in the name of the customer.

Jeff Bezos Bought The Washington Post For One Thing: Distribution ⚙ Co.Labs ⚙ code + community
[surrounding yourself with smarter people] In some sense you wouldn’t even be human anymore. People like Jeff are better regarded as hyper-intelligent aliens with a tangential interest in human affairs . . . Trust me folks, I saw this happen time and again, for years. Jeff Bezos has all these incredibly intelligent, experienced domain experts surrounding him at huge meetings, and on a daily basis he thinks of shit that they never saw coming. It’s a guaranteed facepalm fest. [...] Purpose-built distribution networks for different kinds of content are beginning to solidify into infrastructure, just as e-commerce did 10 years ago. And if we’ve learned anything about Bezos, it’s that he loves to own his own infrastructure and leverage it into new kinds of business we can’t even imagine right now.

Dear Authors, Your Next Book Should be an App, Not an iBook
Carr, in some senses, is right. Reading has changed. What’s not addressed is why this is a bad thing. Carr’s argument is rooted in a distinction between serious readers and non-serious readers. His example involves someone reading only a few paragraphs of a nytimes article, then posting it on Twitter. Carr defines this reading as, “reading in the way that rubbing against women on the subway is sex.”

His example is vivid but also flat out perverse. Carr is confusing length with quality, and more profoundly, he’s confusing the ends with the means.

The mission of an author isn’t to get you to ‘read all the words’, it’s to communicate in the rawest sense of the word. Whether you’re Jeff Jarvis or Dan Brown, you have an idea or a story and a book is a way to express it to the world.

NSFW: I Admit It, The iPad Is A Kindle Killer. I Just Wish It Weren’t Going To Kill Reading Too
And at that point the iPad will indeed have killed the Kindle. But, for millions of casual readers, it will also have killed something far more valuable: the experience of reading for pleasure.

Digital Domain - Will Piracy Become a Problem for E-Books? - NYTimes.com
few readers have preferred e-books to printed or audible versions, so the public availability of free-for-the-taking copies did not much matter. But e-books won’t stay on the periphery of book publishing much longer. E-book hardware is on the verge of going mainstream.
