  1. Interesting move by Bezos. I am convinced he made a very good choice.

    37Signals continues to produce simple, easy-to-use, clean software applications that avoid the web 2.0 hoopla and provide practical value.

    My guess is they will soon be bought over by a larger software firm interesting in tapping in to new-age web apps with revenue-generating potential. This would provide Bezos with a great short term ROI.

    He is a savvy man and I guarantee he expects this move to pay off big time.

  2. I don’t know what to make of this. It still hasn’t registered. This has to be about expanding their reach. Does that mean new products or just help getting the 37s name out there through Bezos? Or both? I guess we’ll see.

  3. Is this concept ready? I used their Ta-Da List service often until one day my account simply disappeared, losing all my info & befuddling their tech support. Why should we trust this paradigm?

  4. I was under the impression that 37Signals has always been funded by Amazon under the table.

    Am i just making this up?

  5. Hello?

    I can’t believe nobody has made the S3 connection.

    Amazon has this really hot and interesting storage service, and 37Signals is the leader in simple webapps.

    Me thinks Bezos gets paid on both ends of this relationship.

    PS. OT: Om, have you seen the ML report that says ESPN should shutdown their MVNO? Boy thats a big surprise.

  6. Jason, did not mean to imply that the deal was done because Bezos wants you to use S3, or even required it as part of the deal. That being said, it does make sense given the relationship for the topic of S3 to be discussed given your business and Amazon’s push into core web services.
