Jeff Bezos and The Washington Post: innovate or die

Always Thinking 7 Years Ahead

I wanted to add that folks should read this article about Bezos attitude towards long term thinking and planning.

I expect he will not just be bringing the Washington Times to profitability by getting The Post’s leadership thinking 7 years into the future instead of reacting to neck breaking trends and technology. A lot of what Amazon is doing now is a result of 7 years of planning and investment.

In other words, what you see in 2015 may have come from insights from 2008.

Bezos is also involved in The Long Now Foundation, which created a 10,000 year clock buried in a mountain in Texas.
