On a largely non-technical mailing list this morning I got involved in a discussion about Amazon. I asked (only half joking) if I was the only person left who was boycotting them. This lead to me having to explain to a number of people just why anyone might be boycotting them in teh first place. The majority feeling on the list (from both non-techies and techies alike) seemed to be that the boycott was pointless and that no-one was taking it seriously any more.
So what's the current situation? Did I miss a memo saying that the boycott had been called off? Is there anyone else still boycotting them?
Oh, and please don't point out the obvious irony of an author campaigning against Amazon. I'm well aware of the amount of money I've made from Amazon sales over the last two years and I've already lost quite enough sleep over that little moral dilemma
