Weighing the options

ALTHOUGH DAVE WINER makes a valid point--don't get into bed with those who would walk on your values--I cannot imagine abandoning my use of Amazon.com just because Jeff Bezos is a patent-happy entrepreneur. Winer despises the interlacing of submarine patents by Amazon. I think they do. But Amazon also deliver books on demand better than any other service. They manage my Wish List and their infrastructure is reponsible to giving me several cool gifts.

So I'm probably hypocritical but I've decided to hold onto my Amazon account, well aware of how the purists would view my decision.
