Jeff Bezos' office in 1997

In 1997... [Bezos] gave a little talk to some Harvard graduate business students about his online store known as Amazon.

As Brad Stone's book The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon relates, the large-brained students began to chat among themselves as if Bezos weren't there.
Then, one of the fine Harvardians told Bezos: 
You seem like a really nice guy, so don't take this the wrong way, but you really need to sell to Barnes & Noble and get out now.

  1. And now he's one of thethe richest man on the planet. And he got there on the backs of his employees, who are still overworked and underpaid. In these times more than ever, please have sympathy for the warehouse workers who put themselves at risk every day so that you can get your stuff delivered. Thank you.
