9  Book of Jeff Bezos  When one thinks of the individuals who have played a great role in the development of the Internet, names like Tim Burners Lee (developer of the World Wide Web), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Michael Dell (Dell Computer), Steve Jobs (Apple Computer) and Vint Cerf (Father of the Internet) spring to mind. Add Jeff Bezos to that list.  Jeff Bezos is the founder and CEO of Amazon.com, which is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, and ranked as the world largest e-tailer. He is not exactly your typical CEO. In fact, everything about him and his company Amazon.com challenges convention. How else can you explain how a man who had an extremely successful career in Wall Street would leave his job, move across the US to Seattle, and start an e-company that would soon amass + million customers in cyberspace?  Learn from competitors. Bezos seems as comtable stealing ideas as he does inventing them. eBay is the rage? Amazon begins holding auctions. Google is getting the headlines and Web searching is the hot business? Bezos starts Amazon own search engine, A9. And he is determined to make his company the Wal-Mart of the Internet. Bezos has admitted to his copycat skill. He said, ;We watch our competitors, learn from them, see the things that they were doing customers and copy those things as much as we can.;  Hire very carefully -- youre creating an enduring culture. Bezos would rather interview 50 people and not hire anyone than hire the wrong person, Why? ;Company Cultures arent so much planned as they evolve from that early set of people. New employees either dislike the culture and leave or feel comtable and stay,; says Bezos.  Be stubborn and flexible. ;If youre not stubborn, youll give up on experiments too soon,; Bezos says. ;And if youre not flexible, youll go against the wall and you wont see a different solution to a problem youre trying to solve.;  Focus on customers, not colleagues. ;There are many ways to be externally focused that are very successful,; Bezos says. ;You can be customer-focused or competitor-focused.; But he warns that ;some people are internally focused, which may hurt the whole company.;  Be simpleminded. Bezos loves making decisions based on hard data, but when that not possible, he believes in the power of being ;simpleminded,; relying on common sense about what would be in the best interests of his customers.  Dont chase the quick buck. ;Sometimes we measure things and see that in the short term they actually hurt sales,; says Bezos. ;But we do it anyway, because we believe that the short-term results probably arent indicative of the long-term.; 186。

  • 1  Identity Crisis  With industrialization and modernization, more and more people are confronted with the problem of identity. The most interesting example is that of a so-called ;banana;, which refers to an American who has an Asian face but holds Western values. In the US many banana children complain that they cannot explain to their young friends in the kindergarten why they cannot speak a word of Chinese and practice Kungfu although they look exactly like a Chinese.  In Shanghai, there now live a group of people from abroad. They look no different from the locals and speak fluent mandarin or even Shanghai dialect, but when it comes to writing the Chinese characters, they are almost illiterate. Jack is such an example. He runs a bar at the Changshu Road. Born in Shanghai, he moved to Los Angeles at the age of two with his parents. With his family, Jack spoke two languages: English and Shanghai dialect. But he never learned to or write the Chinese words, which he find mysterious and difficult. ;To be frank,; he said, ;Every time I signed a contract, I would pretend to its contents carefully, but actually I understood no word of it.; From time to time, he will fly to the US as he does not feel Shanghai is where he came from. ;But when I am in the States, I feel that not my destination either,; he said.  At the De Gaulle Airport in France, there is a Swiss man who has been living at the waiting-room years because he lost his passport during a travel. He was refused entry into several countries. He lived upon being interviewed by the mass media. But when at last, he was allowed to return to Switzerland, he refused to leave the airport. His reason is very simple -- ;I am very sure who I am. I need no acknowledgement from outer influence;, he said during an interview. this reason he is honored by the Western media as ;the Hero of Identity.;  As the Internet becomes more and more popular, the problem of identity becomes more serious. In a virtual world, people can have many identities. One can have different emails registered with different alias. In the Internet chatroom, even one gender is hard to determine. It seems that in this global village, people are saying hello everyday to each other without knowing whom they are talking to.  What will be the next crisis of identity? With the development of cloning technology, it might be: who is the real ;I;? 1818。
