People seem to swing from one extreme to the other. It wasn’t so long ago that Amazon.com could do no wrong. Now everyone wants to chime in on why they’re likely to fail. It’s getting a little silly. However, the article here does make some good points about the concept of “getting it right the first time” and how we can’t expect that from everyone. The fact is that Amazon has done a good job executing and they certainly gave the public and investors what they wanted for a long time. Yes, they do need to figure out how to be profitable, and that should have been in the plan from the very beginning, but to sit back and make fun of them as if you would have done better is just plain silly.
