Amazon on WordPress

Joe Clark wrote in that the Amazon Development Center, India has a WordPress blog. I’ve never seen and the whole thing feels very different from Amazon’s other sites. What’s the story?

  1. Joe Clark must be a Wordlog reader 🙂
    There are about 16-20 researchers working at Amazon India, all of whom are Ph.D.s, Masters, or masters of the trade, working on finding solutions to complex problems. A lot of the employees are folks that returned to India after studying/working here.
    A friend of mine interviewed with them recently and has to say that it was very challenging and purely technical – algorithm optimization etc…
    Amazon is one of many companies that are now beginning to have research centers/labs in India, as opposed to the testing+verification stuff that American software house usually like to start offshore.

  2. Why is it, Matt, that my comment does not count as a comment?

    When I first commented, I could view the comment on the post single-entry page, but the main page of your blog had “0 Comments” on it. I was thinking it should be bad karma for me 😉

    Now, there are two comments, and the main page shows “1 comment”.
