The Dread Pirate Bezos

A few days back I linked to that accidentally revealing post by an ex-Amazon employee about how awful Amazon is to work for and how scrappy their whole setup is. That guy, Steve Yegge, wanted to balance things out and share a mainly positive story about Amazon - and specifically Jeff Bezos. If you're interested in what sort of man he is - given that he's about to take over the world of books - here's the link.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
