21 dog years

A fluffy commentary on dot com grunt work. Since I am still in the midst of this dot com rush, I would expect there to be more details I could identify with. But Amazon.com appears very different from the .com I’ve slaved for the last 3 years. They build their desks out of doors, man. Wow.
Memorable parts: the sharing of desk space in the CS arena. The 12 hour shifts that would allow others to use ‘your’ desk area for their shift. The 2 hour delivery of items you ordered from the Amazon website. Talking the talk and getting out of CS and into Biz Dev. Imploding the Kingdome as a metaphor for the economic implosion.
Not recommended.
