“I start from one point and go as far as possible. But unfortunately, I never lose my way. I say unfortunately, because what would interest me greatly is to discover paths that I'm perhaps not aware of ... The harmonies have become for me a kind of obsession, which gives me the feeling of looking at music from the wrong end of a telescope.”
John Coltrane

Amazon is set to crush offline retail

If Amazon Prime can deliver on same-day delivery, shoppers will grow more accustomed to the “point-click-get” paradigm. Other retailers, online and off, will have no choice but to follow.

I admire the efficieny. I don’t trust the consumerism.

What about people meeting and interacting together?

Where does local fit into the picture?

In a balanced world Amazon is an option (and at times a great option), but once brick-and-mortar option is destroyed haven’t we placed all our eggs in one basket?

If business was less greedy and more appreciative … the push for more and more is going to cause precious resources and facilities to burn out prematurely.
