Early Amazon: The series

I have been enjoying the Xooglers series by Ron Garret and Doug Edwards about their experiences working at Google.

Inspired by their example, I thought I'd experiment with a series here on Geeking with Greg about my early days at Amazon.com.

I will cover some tidbits related to personalization, but I suspect it may be a bit off topic for this blog. If you like what I'm doing or don't like what I'm doing, please leave a comment to let me know.

Hello Greg,

I am really looking forward to reading about those Amazon.com days. The more info you can spare us, the better:)

PS: Very interesting blog.

Nice!

The Xooglers posts have been excellent, and the early days of amazon.com sound intriguing.

Yes, it is a little off the topic of what you usually cover so well, but personal insights and experiences like this are a great changeup. Thanks, in advance.

I think it'd be great if there was a folklore.org -type site out there for those of us with fun yarns; collecting them in one place would be great.

I think those early days at Amazon were probably the best/funnest of my career (so far).
