Thank You, David Risher

David, from the store launches you oversaw to your focus on customer experience, you've been a big part of what we've built. You've epitomized what being at Amazon.com is all about: working hard, having fun, making history. Your contributions will live forever in the form of an ever-evolving Amazon.com. The well-earned stories you will have to tell your grandchildren will only get better as we continue to build on the foundation you helped pour.

On behalf of myself and everyone here at Amazon.com, you have our sincere and strong thanks,


Jeff Bezos
February 2002

PS: In tribute to David, this Easter egg will reside on the Amazon.com Web site in perpetuity. Also, since every page must sell (and since I'm sure David would want it no other way), here's an opportunity to buy something! :)
