Just got this in my inbox… Amazon buys Woot!
On top of the fact that I am a big fan (and decent customer) of Amazon, I am impressed with the way Jeff Bezos acquires companies. Generally speaking, he purchases companies but leaves their corporate culture intact.
If you read an earlier article of mine about Woot! and gave them a chance, (or do it now) you realize pretty quickly that they are nuts. Or, if they aren’t nuts, that they are having far too much fun at work. And I’m jealous.
Jealous of people who work at a company like Woot! and Zappos with quirky corporate cultures. Jealous of those working for a progressive company like Amazon.
Jealous, I tell ya! And happy for Woot! Do you Woot!?
