“In his absence, Brook asked Myers to take personal responsibility for work on another show, The Ogre Show, which would be performed that night. Pleased and flattered, Myers accepted the job as the group’s new boss. He found out later that Brook had given the same to job to everyone else.”

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.
