Bezos and O'Reilly 2.0 16

theodp writes "Looks like Jeff Bezos and Tim O'Reilly are investing together again, and this time it has nothing to do with patent reform. In Bezos Goes Web 2.0 Wild, Private Equity Week's Alexander Haislip reports that Explore Holdings, which as of late has been doing business as Bezos Expeditions, is one of 19 investors that have pumped $34.3M into O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures."

    The really advanced stuff is really obscure and really subtle. Not something cool hunters are likely to pick up on. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    Jeff Bezos won't care, but what about Tim O'Reilly when he discovers a story about him on Slashdot only got 14 posts?
  • If it matters to you, Bezos is clearly a "Red" (i.e. Republican)... (I find that most Amazon customers don't seem to know this).

    If you examine the data for political contributions by bookstores [], you'll see that Amazon is a solidly republican company, as opposed to Barnes and Nobels, which is solidly Democratic.

    Notably, Borders makes no political contributions at all.

    And myself, I try to shop at Stacey's [], an independant San Francisco store that, while a rather large place, appears to be too

Consultants are mystical people who ask a company for a number and then give it back to them.
