Bring me your innovation. Omnomnom.

So it was announced this week that Amazon are swallowing ComiXology into their giant maw.


No doubt congratulations are due to the ComiXology team and I’m sure they are thrilled – who am I to deny them that excitement and success after undoubtedly a lot of work.

That said, personally I grow weary of hearing about the tech giants stomping around the world subsuming all the smaller independent companies as soon as they show any potential or technological innovation.

We are a giant technology company. You have shown initiative and we can’t be bothered to do the same. We are hungry. Omnomnomnom.

Innovation, devoured by a giant corporate beast, oh how it may now wither, see it now painted monotone with the bland corporate compliance brush.
