I feel so dirty. I just placed my first order ever from Amazon.com. For those of you who don’t remember, Amazon decided it was in their best interest to basically try to patent everything that makes eCommerce work back in the late 1990s. This included things like “One Click Shopping” and quite possibly the idea of a ‘shopping cart’.
Luckily, the courts didn’t allow it, but I’ve never really liked an Organization that operated like that. Plus, I like to support local business where possible. So, when Sovereign Press published the Serenity Role Playing Game, I tried to buy it local. No dice.
So, I turned to the Internet, and the savings that Amazon offered was so amazing, I couldn’t justify paying more. I feel so dirty…
