“Twenty years later, “Day 1,” the name of the Amazon headquarters building, was still a rallying cry. “Day 2 is stasis,” he wrote in 2017. “Followed by irrelevance. Followed by excruciating, painful decline. Followed by death. And that is why it is always Day 1.”

“JEFF BEZOS BLAMED the bananas. In early March 2013, he had quietly stolen away from his growing Amazon empire for a three-week expedition at sea, with a team of some of the best deep underwater ocean explorers in the world. Yet despite its vast experience, the crew had somehow violated one of the oldest seamen’s superstitions: never bring bananas on a boat.”

“It was 1995, the dawn of the Internet era. “I thought the Internet would be something that would fundamentally change the nature of humanity,” he said during a speech in 2012. “It was like humanity gaining a nervous system.” So, he told his professor he was taking a deferment to see whether he could start an Internet company, and the teacher said, “Well, I don’t think you’ll be coming back.” That was the last time they ever talked.”
