About a month ago, I got an email from someone at Amazon, asking me about the Amazon Honor System. They mentioned some sort of press stunt about to take place, a barbeque with Jeff Bezos, and the need for quotes from participants in the AHS (to go in a press pack given to anyone that covered the event). I wrote down a couple glowing phrases, emailed it off, and got a quick email of thanks.
Today UPS dropped off a strange looking package. It was strange because it was from amazon, but it didn't look like anything from amazon. Inside was some swag, a sweatshirt and a coffee mug, along with a note of thanks.
Who knew the 800 pound gorilla of e-commerce still has nice, thoughtful humans working inside?
