Amazon Buys Woot – Will They Change It?
Yesterday news came out that Amazon.com was buying Woot, a well known deal-a-day website (a least well-known to techies). Over the years Woot! has grown a very niche community and created a culture around their business. The overwhelming concern is: Will Amazon change that?
At what cost would such a community-oriented website “sellout”? TechCrunch is now reporting that the sale was for $110 Million.
