It is now time for the bwest wide.

-- bwest byte.

$54 million, the amount of money amazon raised in its 1997 ipo.

The powerful woman behind the ipo was the chief -- the chief financial officer.

She died last night in a tragic bicycle accident.

She was the architect of the companies expansion.

She was a friend of mine.

I am sorry, such a sad story.

It is a moment to stay -- take stock in how far amazon has come.

Think about a company that had to prove itself.

It was a different story more than a decade ago.
