Yeah I don't get that one. He implies Jones will distribute it in some way, so maybe it's to some charity or whatever that Jones is running?

As crazy as the amounts are that he’s giving away, his ex-wife has given away way more.

It’s probably pretty obvious, but I’m not that impressed with Jeff Bezos.  Maybe the only area where Trump and I have common ground.  Lol

I met Van Jones a few years ago. He runs an organization that helps economically disadvantaged kids learn to code, so Im guessing that's what its for.

That sounds like a good organization, I hope they have the right people though. People who code need to also have a strong basic education, and some in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods just are not getting even the basics. 

If you can't do basic math and have a reasonable understanding of the world, knowing "how to code" is useless. Coding is really just problem solving, and software is an incredibly flexible tool to solve those problems.

The Wright brothers never made it to space.  Freaking amateurs.

The historical figure that Bezos kind of reminds me of is Andrew Carnegie.  There’s definitely worse people you could be compared to.

Carnegie was way more philanthropic by this point in his life.

I know.  
 

But the two things that stick out to me is the how both guys used technology to build up their company and how they treated (or treat) their workforce.  Although Bezos pays a little better - $20 an hour instead of $20 a week. :P
