Google has quietly expanded their presence in New York and a lot of cities. Next will be Toronto. And Google has received the same local subsidies Amazon finally obtained.

But Google has done it without Amazon's loudly promoted "contest" - - which is one of Jeff Bezos's worst decisions ever.

Do you think it would be easier placing cellular anntennae or fiber cable by announcing a big public contest to determine the best sites? You're expending time and money to involve millions of people who wouldn't normally be part of the processs and would not have noticed or cared what you were doing.

In addition to making the process harder, he pissed off twenty or so cities he probably had no intention of considering in the first place.

I almost sold my Amazon stock when I heard about the "contest".
