Visiting Amazon

This week I'll be flying out to Seattle in a visit to Amazon, as we'll be evaluating them for a potential partnership.  I've been competing with them, either directly or indirectly, most of my ecommerce career.  Their leadership in the space, use of technology, and strategic vision have been areas of admiration for me for the past decade and a half. 

While I have a job to do and need to maintain my objectivity, I can't help but feel excited and energized by the prospects of this visit.  I can't wait to see it, and know that I'm going to learn a ton. 

It should be a really great week this week.


  1. Make sure you make the time to visit Pike Place Market if you haven't been. It may be touristy, but the flying fish are something to see in person. Let me know how it goes... K

  2. Kev,

    I've been to the fish market before - fun area. Some of the catches those guys make are incredible.
