"One of the key innovations of IPFS is in data addressing, which increases the efficiency of data fetching, but there's more to IPFS and justice. One will now get into all of these other features. Yeah, so this is kind of the initial separation I chose for IPFS and plot point where I sort of the thinking here was that one protocol should be focused on the addressing and how we move the data. And that's where IPFS handles the problem is IPFS defines the addressing and IPFS gives you the protocols by which you go and find the content and fetch it and display it locally. And a different protocol should address how you store and pay for the storage of the data. And that separation is pretty important because you may have a lot of incentive structures on how you decide to store something. Like you could have completely altruistic cases or a model where a community together is going to decide to store and share the distribution of the data without a currency. And so I kind of wanted to very explicitly separate the notion of incentivizing a community to share resources like storage, as a separate piece. And so that's where 5 point comes in. You can think of IPS as kind of mapping to HTTP and filecoin mapping to Amazon S three or Google Cloud object storage or something like that. And so the so IPS tells you how to address the data how to find out how to get it. And how to move the bytes from one computer to another and how does your computer go and find out where the data is, how do you request it? How do you get it from who do you request it? And so on. And filecoin is a way of organizing lots of people around the planet to provide super reliable, high quality of service, very cheap storage, to

"And curate ecosystems inside of our facilities for people to interconnect to clouds and networks. And as a service providers and all these, they really get that this interconnection platform that we have and a track record of service excellence. But what we are finding is that people want to consume that value proposition in different ways. They want it more as a service, more on demand, more software enabled. And so, you know, I think our diverse education is coming in evolving our value proposition in those ways. So are you competing then with AWS and Microsoft? Not really. I would say that, you know, as you look at most, if you go to any large enterprise CIO or even CIOs of service providers who are saying how are we building our infrastructure, hybrid and multi cloud is really the architecture of choice. They absolutely are, in fact, your biggest customers, Amazon Web Services, and Google. The hyperscalers are significant customers as far as because they actually use our infrastructure oftentimes to place network nodes, they're on ramps to their clouds, often live in our facilities. We have about 40% share. And then we have a sort of JV business where we build large scale data centers for them. We do that through a JV that we have with sovereign wealth fund to Singapore GIC. And so that's so they are big customers. But most customers are ending up where they're saying, look, I may put even the super majority of my workloads in the public cloud over time. But there's a variety of things that they need and they want private infrastructure that's proximate to the cloud. And they want it geographically distributed. And so that's where we really come in as being able to support them as they move to hybrid and multi cloud. And security, just give us kind of how you've used security up data in a cloud. It's more and more is going into the cloud. I know that's a concern for people. It is. But I think that, you know, I think the technology is out there to make that to address those challenges. We're going to increasingly zero trust environment. I think companies are using a variety of things. We have a lot of customers that are delivering security applications and services as part of the ecosystem that lives inside platform equinix. And so, and making those kinds of things available in allowing them to integrate with cloud services, that's a key part of our value prop. All right, Charles, thank you so much for joining us really appreciate it. Fascinating stuff, Charles Myers. CEO of equinix.

"The car coach, Lauren fix. Welcome back to America first. Well, thanks for having me. Lots going on and I'm really, really excited. I was able to get you some safe breaks put on your vehicle. 'cause those drum brakes. Yeah, a little bit spongy. And when it's raining, not so exciting. So I've got disc brakes all round. There is my baby, there is my 66 Mustang. I've got the 2020 as one, a 2020 as well for the everyday stuff. And the new steering wheel, thank you for the recommendations and your contact. Last thing, and I'm not going to touch it, some period correct rims. And then maybe some AC, I might put some AC in because it gets a little hot and sticky here in the swamp. All right. Enough about me and my pony, although I do need people to go to my website and tell me a name. I need a name and not Sally. Okay, I'm not doing the stupid Mustang Sally. I need a female name, go to said gorka dot com and send me a little message that said gorka dot com. All right, you've been sending me some fascinating stuff. First things first, it's not cars. Right now he's allegedly negotiating. But what is the impact going to be if we have a rail strike Lauren in America? Oh, it's going to be huge. Now I know everyone's talking about what you're literally looking at billions of dollars of losses. Because everything goes cars get transported from the manufacturing plant. To the sub area where it then goes to your dealer. So that means good luck getting cars. We can't get them now. That means all the components, tires, metal, just think of everything that you need gets from point a to point B from the West Coast to the east coast, usually by rail, then it's transported to a diesel powered rig and then from there to the final destination in the last mile to your store or to wherever you're going. And that includes like Amazon packages, U.S. Postal Service, FedEx. That new planes, but they also use rail. And without rail, we're in a lot of trouble. And we've been using it for years, plus passengers, Amtrak, which is owned by the government as well. They can't seem to organize the postal service or Amtrak. But the fact is without diesel and there's a shortage of diesel and without the railroad system we have a supply chain that nightmare.

America Deserved to See the Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Televised

"Of course we got the Ghislaine Maxwell's situation, and this is perhaps the most bullshit ever. This could be the trial of the century second only to O. J. Simpson. Naturally, the Jeffrey Epstein trial would have been all that and a bag of nuts, but we didn't get that because, well, either he was killed or he killed himself, but he's gone. So then you get his second in command, his gal Friday, his right hand man, Ghislaine Maxwell, I mean, I make jokes about this, but these are two people who are involved in sex trafficking, pedophilia. You know, we can't, we can't act like, oh, well, they just like to get laid and this is an awful thing these two are involved in. I can't believe we, as Americans, are not able to see this trial. I can't believe there's nobody streaming this trial. Hulu? Amazon, Netflix? Nope, Disney+, perhaps? After all, it is about kids. Can anybody? I know they can't. I'm just saying, I know the judge says, no, we're not getting any no cameras in the courtroom. So all you're going to get are people who come out of the court at night and talk to quote unquote journalists who are folks standing in the street with a microphone or an iPhone and go live. You've got to search these people out. The one correspondent, the one journalist you need to hear from regularly throughout this trial would be Vicki ward. She's somebody that has written extensively about Ghislaine Maxwell. She knows everything about her. I don't know if she's in the courtroom, I would assume she is, but we're not gonna get to see anything. And it's a shame, I think yesterday are two days ago, the first day of the trial, some people spilled out of the courtroom and talked freedom fires is that there's an Instagram page, freedom, fires, they've got this woman on the street, really interesting black woman named Joe. She's good, she likes to get information out about what she's hearing. I don't think she'll be back in there after she kind of spilled her guts as to what this looks like. So they're probably gonna deny her access, which is really a shame. We were supposed to know about this. This can't be held in a dark room with no light is shined upon it. It ain't right, man.

The World Is on Edge As Former President Trump Prepares to Run Again

"Street Journal actually put this quite well in a piece that they wrote today and editorial piece. They said, quote, before COVID, he being Donald Trump was headed for reelection, but the damage from his shutdown of the economy combined with his erratic behavior in that crisis gave Joe Biden the opening to campaign for normalcy. Mister Trump lost a winnable election. I think that's a fair assessment. It was a mistake to shut things down and to keep things shut down for so long. And the inflation that we now have, frankly, is a result of all that. Poor decisions that were made at the time, and that resulted in multiple stimulus checks I mean, hey, the first, the first one, what are you going to do? We had no choice, but then there was the second and then there was Joe Biden's third, and then there was the Federal Reserve all along printing printing printing, printing in now, we have record inflation, and I suspect we're going to have real economic trouble in the near future, as the fed tries to reign this thing in. It can't be done, not the way they want. I'm sorry. I mean, hey, they can pull a rabbit out of their hat. I'll take it. But I don't believe we are going to be able to get through the next 12 months without having a pretty serious recession.

When Will Trickle-Down Economics Trickle Down for You?

"Mister Kirk. I mean, okay, I voted Trump in the 2020 election, but oh, good. You're not that liberal. Okay, but things changed my mind. But anyways, I'm young, obviously. And I was wondering about trickle down economics. I was wondering, when is it going to trickle down for me because historically I've never personally seen it like, for example, this trust got she resigned over the dumb tax things, Georgia Bush said it was voodoo economics. So my question to you is, would trickle down? I mean, or when is it going to trickle down? Yeah, I'm not a defender necessarily a tricker down economics. I mean, I think in some ways, if you want to talk about supply side versus demand, here's the thing. I happen to be, I used to be a really economic libertarian and then I grew up and you start to see that you actually need some checks and balances and externalities in the market. I am a big defender of the market though, generally. So how should we approach economics, I suppose that's a question, right? And so here's how I answer that, which is that an economy should serve people. People should not serve the economy. Okay, I think you and I could both agree with that. And so I will defend them. The idea of giving tax cuts to businesses. That's a very good idea. Because businesses are run by people and businesses employ people. Now should you only give them to big businesses? No, I think that's silly. But the vast majority of businesses in America are small businesses run by entrepreneurs. And so for example, my entire economic viewpoint is to make you more empowered and easier for you to be able to start a business and grow a business from something to nothing. So you can call it whatever you want. You can call it free market economics, entrepreneurship focused economics, whatever it is. But I think you and I could find some common ground on some things. For example, I think it's wrong and it's stupid and it's silly that the largest corporations in America don't pay anything in income tax, whether it be Amazon or ExxonMobil. It's not fair, it's not right. And I think a lot of these loopholes are designed to be able to favor the corporate lobbyists in Washington, D.C., while everyday people get completely and totally crushed. And I'm

"Really into this. Oh nice. So recommending that again and then my last thing is my ring light. And I bought a ring light, I think like last winter because it got dark early and I still had conference calls and I would just be sitting like even if I had the lights on my apartment, I would look so like I would look like I was in the witness protection program on my house because it would be dark. And so I got a ring light. I mean, I use it for work, not for like Instagram things. And it is such a game changer. I didn't know how to pick a ring light and I just picked it based on the reviews. And it's $35 and it is great. This is all you need, it has three light settings. It has like a cool one, a neutral one and a warm one, depending on what kind of light situation you're going for. It's adjustable to make the light higher or lower. It is great. It just plugs into a USB port in your computer. And it's easy to set up too. I am a fan. Yes, I had one like that. I just got this cool one from an Instagram ad. I have to show it. I'll show it to you later, but it's really interesting because it packs up like a little square. And so it's a little bit less. I feel like I have so much blog equipment that it's all over my house. And I like this little one. Okay, yeah, I want to see it.

"Let's get into food where I have multiple hot sauce recommendations. I could have put more in here, which is the funny part. The way you feel about a snack episode is maybe the way I feel about this section of hot sauce recommendations. That's so funny. It's not all hot sauce. So the first thing that I buy on Amazon is I buy my fancy cocktail cherries that I put in my manhattans and I like the luxardo Gourmet cherries. And before anyone says it, yes, I have tried the Trader Joe ones. Yes, I have tried the cheaper knockoff Amazon ones. I don't like them. So we tried the Jack fruity ones. I don't know which ones those are. They might be the ones that I've tried from Amazon. Okay. But I like these. Okay. I like the looks are no ones. Okay. These are the ones that I prefer for my manhattans. I can't get them anywhere around here. So I order them on Amazon. The second thing is my chunky hot sauce that I love. So it's called the pepper plant hot sauce, and I discovered it when I lived in California because it's available just in supermarkets there. And it doesn't exist here. And so I order it on Amazon and it's definitely way overpriced on Amazon. It is my favorite. I love, I love it for avocado toast, eggs, I love it on rotisserie chicken. It's like kind of somewhere between a hot sauce and a dip almost. Oh, it is so good. And it's not too hot. It's like more garlicky than hot, I guess? Okay. So there is a hotter when there's a habanero one, but even if you're not a crazy spicy person, I think you could tolerate this grace. Okay, I'm gonna look at this. Oh, it's so good. Then the other thing I'm bringing is something that I discovered through Alex. So do you remember when we were both at your house for your 40th birthday? And Alex made that cheese plate, and she had the truffle potato chips. Oh my God, they were so good. They're so good. So they're the Torres truffle potato chips. I never had them before, but now that I had them, I kind of noticed them different places on Instagram or whatever. I think they're quite popular. These chips are mind-blowing. And they're fairly cheap too. So I bought them on Amazon, and I thought that what I was getting was a three pack, but I think what I actually got was three packs of three, so it's like it was $13 and it was so many chips. Okay, 'cause I'm looking at it and you were like, yeah, it's cheap. I was like, a three pack for $13 doesn't sound because it's only a 40 gram package. I was like, that's three little snack sizes. No, it's like three packs of three, I think. Okay. Okay, that's reasonable. And I feel like they're really impressive when you have friends over and you put them out with a cheese plate or with appetizers. They feel like fancy chips more than like lays you. Yes, I agree. Which I also love. And then my last one, I couldn't stick to just three. So it's two dough Calabria hot pepper spread. And I discovered this through grossy Pelosi who I talk about much less. Now, but I'm still equally as obsessed with. And it's this Calabrian hot chili pepper spread. Grace, this is too spicy for you. Oh yeah, John is obsessed with Calabrian chili peppers and I hate them. Oh, you should get this for him. It's so good. And if you spread it on any kind of bread that you're gonna use for a sandwich, it just, oh my God, it makes it so much better. So much better. It's so good. I also scoop a little bit of this whenever I make vodka sauce, I like put a spoonful in to make it spicy vodka sauce. Oh. So I kept myself only to two hot sauce recommendations, even though I probably have like ten. Okay. Tell me about your food racks. So my first one is the red clay everything salts. So red clay speaking of hot sauce is my friend Molly is hot sauce company. And she makes really good hot sauces. I really like the red one and the green one because they're not terribly spicy. These are also on Amazon. But the spicy everything sauce that she has, I put them on everything. I know that this grosses you out, but my favorite high protein breakfast is an English muffin from Dave's killer bread plus a bunch of scoops of cottage cheese plus the everything spices. And it tastes almost like an everything bagel. It's like a high protein trying to be healthy treat. And I really, really like it. And I'll tell you, I always use the Trader Joe's. Everything salt. And then I ran out of Molly's salts and I missed the kick of Molly assault because there are a lot like the Trader Joe's, but they're a little spicy. And I was like, oh, and I gave the other everything salts away and just ordered more of the red clay ones because I love them. I'm obsessed with them. They're also good. You can put them on salads, you can put them on eggs. I'm a pretty basic cook. I'm cooking for one, so it's like I like grill some chicken or put it on a salad. It's great on that. I'm not like a super creative cook, but I pretty much have these every day with that cottage cheese, English muffin. Okay. And then you'll laugh at this one. Ken's Italian salad dressing. It is so good and you can not get it down here. You can't really even get it in New York grocery stores. It is my favorite salad dressing. It's just like the most delicious Italian salad dressing..

"So yes. Now the benefit of adding the products into the carousel from the viewer's perspective is a one click purchase or what is it like from their end? They can add it to cart. One of the things that I have found is that because there are multiple products just like you said a second ago, it's like, what's the name of that phone holder thing? There's many of them on Amazon. So even if you find one that looks similar to mine, it may not be the same brand. And so especially when you're telling people, hey, buy this one. You want to be very specific. So adding it to the carousel allows you to pick the specific one that you have. I do a lot of going to my what's it called your order history and add them to my carousel and try to get the code to add from my carousel from there. But that's one of the major reasons I think for adding it to the carousel because you can definitely make sure that this is indeed the right one. Well, when it comes to books and stuff too, you're talking about a concept. By the way, this is something people should think through. You don't have to just sell what you think of as traditional products. You could be talking about a concept like entrepreneurship, right? Yeah. And somebody could remind you of a really important book. And you could add it to the carousel and then all of a sudden, it's going to come up on that book's page. That's correct. That's really important for people to think through that. And if you don't add that to the carousel, then you're going to potentially miss out on some people that might be looking at that product page is what I'm hearing to say, right? You will miss out on view. That's exactly right. You will miss out on the people who are looking at that product page. But anybody that's watching you live, even if they go and search that book, they're still connected to you. So whatever credit that Amazon is going to give you for being the conduit for bringing that person to the platform and clicking the buy button, they're going to give that to you. Does the live video go down like in the corner, whether surfin Amazon or do they have to leave that experience do you understand what I'm asking? Yes, I do. I believe it doesn't go down in the corner so if they click on a product, it will bring them to that page, but it will I think it brings them to the page with you unmuted on that page. Oh, you're so you're still there if they want to listen to you. Okay, that's good. Yeah, because if they scroll down to where you're live on that product page, they will still be able to hear you. So it actually still be able to see you. They'll still be able to hear you because you'll be unmuted. Fascinated..

"It's selling you know. Five hundred units a day. And you have this other product in there as you know. Say two thousand units now. It's not a lot of inventory. But that had set up. Product has really. It's a slow mover. It's something that you needed to to get rid of for a while instead of pulling it from amazon with a removal order which would only free at the space you could potentially drop. The cries do a coupon discount or in some other way to flash sale and quickly burn through that inventory. You know maybe reduced profit or even a loss but what it's doing is that the two thousand units that you sell through during the time of the stock out will not only gain space in your inventory in your in your inventory capacity. It'll will also increase the velocity so that your velocity won't completely crash so that the next time you're restocked limit is assessed. Its local. Make sense you get to benefit from a guest in other if you're removing because he doesn't sell once you've removed as some warehouse isn't going to get an easier to sell it. Not only you could try and sell amazon. But you're going to have to reduce the price now you've got to m. from somebody else's warehouse and seeming they actually fulfill stuff whereas well guess what you're saying. Is you gain this space. Because it's moving out the way but you actually increase in the other side of the which make sense to me. And i think you know what you're saying is is really and we talked about this and this knock-on effects being better business people are being kind of dropping ever bigger hints to the point of almost killing on bendini with with some clients with say a thousand skews whatever mostly if they're reselling other people's but some not manufacturing stuff whatever the big companies and especially most companies. It can have a lot of skews. Most of them never shift and if they do they actually sell a paper thin profit at best and they've been allowed to get away with it but it was terrible for that business anyway so i think amazon is forcing surgery. Pain which is yes. I'm doing it for their own reasons. Obviously by not not trying to be evil. But i think actually been begging people to do this anyway. Do you think is up fair or my again. This kind of exaggerated response to this. I think i think it's right. I think that not enough. People understand the inventory in the financial aspects of their business the industry a whole has grown as marketers and we as marketers focused on you know revenue a lot. You know the best. The the eighty twenty rule. It's the twenty that's been dragging us down and keeping us from being lean and this. These new changes are forcing as a as as sellers to pass.

"And they got a win with the echo and so they have flooded literally flooded the zone. The zone is your house and they flooded it with gadgets. Because there's like they've got an edge there so they're taking that lead but they're doing it while they're still developing the idea of what an ambient os is an ambient. Ui is partly in the cloud and partly local and we talk about what stuff happens on the edge in your devices and what happens in the cloud and we're at the app you go system is blah blah blah. But the bottom line is. It's like it's not quite ready. So while other companies were maybe hanging back and trying to build up the whole thing and they're in five years the smart home is gonna be amazing amazon's like yeah in five years. It might be amazing but we want to sell you stuff now. So we're going to sell you all the beta products And there's a tiny part of me. Maybe not that tiny. That is fine with that. Like sympathetic to that. Like eager to participate in in some ways. Like i do want to have some of the stuff. Now i'm willing to deal with bugs now. And i think the second piece of this is when everybody saw astro there was a resounding earth shattering. Nope from everybody's saying i don't want this thing Because it's a surveillance gadget but you know like who's who's who's doing this surveilling. Well is amazon using the cameras if we trust them maybe not and so. We're surveilling ourselves and there's a whole thing there you talk about ring cameras you can get those end to end encrypted now so there. There is no external surveillance if you set that up properly. But we're deep in the weeds. At this point for the average person the average person is still kind of likes amazon amazon. Still does than all the other big tech companies in terms of like do consumers like them and so the average person will look at that echo. Show fifteen be like. Oh it's not a big dump. Plastic agile my counter. It's a nice thing on the wall. And maybe i can put like a shared calendar on it done so. I think they're doing fine with this stuff like it's not like it's at a p beautifully perfect curated ecosystem. It's a messy messy messy ecosystem with lots of like privacy implications that are very troubling but the stuff is and the stuff is available now. It's not a self driving cars will be here in five years pipedream. Promise yeah i by all that. I think all that's correct that thing you're saying that it's all kind of in beta and they don't know what the platform is means that you're buying stuff. That kind of fundamentally isn't very useful not more useful than the old form factor was and i. I'm the one who most routinely makes the case that all people care about is what they look like. Bright like it's a bigger screen. They're going to buy a new one because it looks different. And you can articulate what's different this one's a circle like you just buy it got. I've done that.

"Welcome back. All right, aside from the ASTRO robot, Amazon also showed off some other, I guess you'd call them more normal smart home gadgets, maybe? All right, a lot of them are themed around security. So Amazon owns the brand ring. And we saw some new ring cameras, alarm systems, video doorbells, that kind of thing. We also saw the ring always home cam, which was first announced last September, but never actually launched. It's still not like really launched. It's once again one of these invite only devices, and it's basically a drone that flies around inside your home. We're gonna talk about that. Amazon also revealed a new video doorbell from blink, which is another smart home company that had bought. So Amazon is not only putting cameras and microphones in your home through. It's echo brand. And learning a lot from your voice queries and what you're doing on things like the echo show. But it's moved more and more into the home security space over the years. And it seems like it's really eager to position itself as the company for smart home protection. Adrienne, talk about this a little bit. And also tell us, are you currently using ring cameras in your own home? I used to. I mean, I tested one last year and we let the subscription expire. Yeah, this is a real behind the curtain moment here because we on the reviews team have been really struggling with how we are going to cover ring and ring cameras. I think we've disagreed with some of ring's policy decisions in the past, which makes it really hard to wholeheartedly recommend a piece of hardware, even if we like it. They're simple, they're easy to use. They are reasonably priced. And it's hard to reconcile policy decisions with a piece of hardware that is, you know, pretty good because the ultimate thing here is that the smart whole smart home ecosystem, it's easier and it's more useful if all of your devices are on a single network. If you already have an echo, it's easier to use Amazon devices that are going to play nicely with each other. You already have people on the gear team who are, you know, Google people versus Apple people versus Amazon people. It's just more useful if it's all together and what is more all together than Amazon. So it's a really tough, tough question on a number of levels. And that is a question I get a lot from friends and family when they're looking to invest in home security. Mostly I hear, should I get nest or should I get ring? And then in some cases, they may not be fully aware that nest is owned by Google and ring is owned by Amazon. And so my response is, well, whose universe do you want to live in more? Google or Amazon. And that's kind of the decision that you have to weigh at high level these days. Yeah. So one thing that I ask myself after walking away from the event is why is Amazon investing so much in smart home security? You know, they purchased ring, they purchased blink. They have this whole ecosystem of cameras, everything works with Alexa, everything works with echo show. So is this just something that feels like a natural add on to the devices that they've already made that are interactive that have screens that have cameras like this is just sort of the natural extension of what Amazon has already come up with? Or is there something else? Do they have consumer data about people are really spending a lot of money on this stuff? Do they feel as though if they make it and it works with Alexa that people will buy it or do they feel that people will trust them? There are just so many questions about why it feels like this is such a huge opportunity because it doesn't feel cohesive to me yet. You know, it's like so disparate. So many different brands. It doesn't feel like a system. Yeah, it's a really good question. And I think it was end gadget a couple days after the event wrote a story about how Amazon is essentially turning into a personal security company with all of these strategic acquisitions that it's made and all the products that it's putting out now and the way that they described it as the robots are the face of Amazon's in home security business, but ring is actually the backbone and ASTRO the bod is demonstrative of that. It's kind of like it's branded like this friendly thing and it's for inside your home, but really it's the ten inch tablet on it and it becomes a monitoring system for whatever rings you have installed in your home for whatever video streams that you're getting served up or maybe you're paying for rings cloud service for its premium service for advanced features and that kind of thing. Yes, Amazon knows these things are going to sell. It has a tremendous amount of data and what people are buying on its platform and probably another platforms as well. It knows that people are very into home security these days. But I think also it's ultimately it's selling you on this service with ring. Also, I mean, that's part of the controversy, right? Because ring has signed agreements with more than I think more than 2000 police departments around the U.S. and in these partnerships basically it enables with some of their products people to go into the ring app and opt to share video with police departments, but also allows police departments to request video data from ring. And this is something that privacy advocates and the electronic frontier foundation have really expressed concern about. EFF revealed that at one point the LAPD had targeted Black Lives Matter protests last summer. With these bulk ring requests for footage from doorbell cameras, and those are protected activities by the First Amendment. And yet it's possible that police departments are viewing this footage and actually going to accuse people of some kind of malfeasance or crime or something like that as a result. And ring had changed its policies. We've done briefings with ring in recent months where they've said, look, we're trying to be more transparent about this. We're hearing these concerns. We have now made it so that when police do request ring footage, the information requests itself is made available to the public, so people like journalists and civil rights advocates don't have to jump through hoops to file these public information requests to a little bit more accessible. But the partnerships do still exist. And I guess that's not really answering your question directly about why Amazon is in this business in my opinion, but it's an important part of the business these partnerships that it doesn't seem inclined to back away from if anything it wants to push more into. Here is my answer to that question Mike, which is that home security cameras and stuff feel like as a gear tester, it fits this specific category for the customer, which is the items that just have to be good enough. Like frictionless and good toilet paper or composition notebooks and multiple home security cameras around your house. And that was one of the most striking things about nearly everything that Amazon announced that day, which is that I have seen this before. It was probably better, it costs $50 more. So almost everything. If it's a product that's just that's just good enough. Which goes completely against our inclination as gadget writers and reviewers to find the thing that works the best, but that's not what, you know, that's not what most people want. They just want something that is going to be affordable and is going to work. And that is something that Amazon is uniquely positioned to provide, I think. That is so true. Yeah, they're this big company and they can make things at scale and they can compete. They can sell products as lost leaders. But that march towards let's just make all the stuff cheaper so that you can buy more of it. That's what really causes a lot of friction for me because it is important that anybody who's considering buying this stuff stops and asks themselves whether or not they actually need it or it's something that they feel comfortable having in their home..

I can essentially disuse amazon memory. Db horrendous to handle both of these things that i normally would need in my applications right so customers have allowed to us and they've used open source writers or maybe they're using amazon elastic cache horrendous. And now they're saying well. We've had some relaxed durability guarantees as a result of the fact that we knew it was a cash or maybe we were just comfortable with the fact that we might lose x. amount of data as a result of some of the synchronous replication protocols. Or maybe we were dependent on some persistence. Features of open source rightous. That aren't necessarily cloud native to support the performance that we want to get as well as the ability to recover from failures. So that's part of the cloud native transaction log to be able to keep up with the rights and to be able to recover in the event that a node within your memory for horrendous would actually fail. that's that's kind of the the benefit that we're providing as well as the simplicity of the architecture by removing the need to separate the cash and the database layer. That's incredible what about security. So you know you mentioned that. It's going to replicate across by the way to do that.

"Were amazon is the largest online retailer in the world. But it's not just amazon that sells products there. Millions of other companies. Use the site get in front of customers through what is called the amazon marketplace. The amazon marketplace is what. I like to call an infinite bizarre. It's a bottomless virtual place. Where sellers can come sell their goods. To all of amazon's customers amazon doesn't put limits on how many sellers can come to this marketplace so in any given item sunglasses shoes beauty products there are thousands upon thousands of sellers competing in the same category and for these sellers to get noticed in this infinite bizarre. They need customers to post reviews. Ideally good ones. A lot of people put stock in reviews online because they can't touch and see the product that they're buying and so they need a recommendation from someone.

"Build your own amazon. When i worked as an engineer at amazon. I would arrive at the office every day before. Six thirty am amazon's. Enormous campus is in downtown seattle. The company expands across the city like a massive growing organism composed of towering buildings and echo spears. The constant wet mist of seattle always seems lighter within amazon campus. Perhaps thinned by the optimism. That amazon inspires in its workforce. Yes amazon is truly inspiring for all the cynical headlines. The longevity of the workforce speaks for itself brilliant people stay employed at amazon longer than they stay with religion. The culture is more rewarding and the tenants are more modern. I stayed at amazon for eight months. I think of my time. There is a kind of cultural immersion. Like study abroad in a foreign land. Eight months is longer than a good affair and shorter than a bad marriage. Eight months was long enough for amazon to become a part of me. You can take the entrepreneur out of amazon but you can't take amazon out of the entrepreneur. It's six thirty. Am there's no traffic as you drive across the bridge from bellevue to seattle podcasts. Sound better at six thirty a. m. at six thirty. Am even the amazon. Workforce is still rubbing the sleep out of its is before beginning their march into the office. Parking amazon cost me twenty five dollars per day. A daily reminder of amazon's prideful frugality. My blue badge gave me access to most of the buildings across the sweeping campus. It was like having a ticket to a huge theme park and at six thirty. Am i had all the rides to myself.

"Opportunity applies to amazon as a third party to marketplace as well doesn't it because if the people driving nat and driving the revenue are not actually so much the customers but the people who are paying for advertising then eventually if there's more active return tive than wegener they leave but shopping isn't it because it doesn't own it has no it has no customers and no distribution system trim is definitely. It's nice front and takes care of building an ecommerce store for you one muzzle tough. I mean that's you know that and that you know that and of course it will will get you a glass awards or somewhere. I mean it's not it it. It misunderstands the power of amazon's customer base. That's that's the magnet if you want to sell in the us online unless you are prepared to build your own direct to the consumer business you. How many alternatives to amazon walmart is not an alternative notice norris target. They don't have the customer base. So you know what you can do is to as you suggested. Find ways to build brand equity off the platform and to try and build slowly or quickly depending on how on your resources your own direct to consumer business that focuses on your knees. That's you know. That's the tentative. Just going onto amazon means you. I mean in. You know to extend my sharecropper analogy but the the the advertising business is just at amazon's version of the company store. I where you had to buy goods from the company store because that was the only store in town and they charge you a nominal like for and yeah just thought that was just an additional fee that the shack up is had to pay and advertising is just an additional fee that digital digital marketers have to pay they pay it you know they pay it to google or they pay it to facebook and one would point out that amazon's advertising business has grown much faster than facebook google because it's much more efficient. It gives you customers when they wanna buy things as opposed to when they're looking for things so you know it's both a carrot and stick. It's the best place to advertise. But it's also basically compulsory. Yeah yeah that's true. I mean that google was the big thing back in the teeth. Thousands and then not became pay to play to a degree. Although i think eagle seo smaller side of getting overlooked. I think actually google s still a great way to build a business but it takes time and it takes a broader set facebook advertising if you want to appear on social media it is getting much much hottest do organic stuff and people wasted of time with social media work. When frankly yes. You're right. I would still advise somebody. Should i spend money on this thought with the other ads i would just say let's keep it simple. Not even brand dad's a lot of the time. It would simply be the old standard at so lost sort of area of questions. I'm before we let you get back to washington life and consulting people is where is amazon heading so we talked about how they make money some fascinating and critical insights which i think Revelatory in a really so important understanding whereas going what's driving stuff and and frightening logical conclusions about the amazon ads thing is employed out yet so they could well go up so that scary but seems realistic based on the extrapolation of the trends..
