The 2nd richest (money) man in the world is stepping down from his role at Amazon. Jeff Bezos started with a few books, in a garage, and look at what he made from that. OK, maybe a little poetic license there. Moving to the executive chair at the board in the 3rd quarter, perhaps it’ll give him more time to spend money on space ventures like Blue Origin, newspapers like Washington Post, or… well, who knows. More power to him!

“Right now I see Amazon at its most inventive ever, making it an optimal time for this transition.”
