  3. He’s a big fan of science fiction.
  4. He can talk to you about web services and other technologies like he’s been working with them for years.
  5. He was smart enough to invest in the 37signals guys last year.
  6. He’s building a spaceship.
  7. Even though he’s the top guy at Amazon, he still thinks and cares about things like how to reward the product reviewers on his site.
  8. You can see his personal wishlist up on Amazon.
