Amazon and the Future of Shopping

There’s an interview over on Reuters/Second Life with Amazon’s Jeff Barr about the future of shopping (Link). It’s okay. A little short and a little light on details, but worth a read. Amazon – or more properly some of the people working for Amazon – is one of those companies you just have to keep an eye on. If you’ve not checked out some of the things they’ve been doing with Second Life (e.g. reLink), I’d recommend developing an interest. More than almost any other company, I expect Amazon to be blazing the trail for the future of commerce – both online and off.
