Amusingly, all the women I've met who work for Amazon are boring as shit, too. I think the company just attracts a lot of boring people.
It does. Think about it, their main products are all boring to the average person in terms of design. It is all databases, intercommunications, virtualization, server management, etc. There is very little "exciting" code that a normal person would understand, which is a very small subset to begin with and mostly consists of video games, because that is something tangible.
Amazon's products ARE boring. I'd not want to work on their platforms, it seems tedious. Yea they offer a lot of really cool services, but the services are cool to use, not build (at least from my point of view, I know some people that'd love to be in the depths of virtualization).
