A spokesman for Amazon head Jeff Bezos just gave me a statement about the reports that he had been felled by a kidney stone attack on a trip to the Galapagos.

According to Galapagos Digital, the famous techie was flown from a cruise ship by an Ecuadorian navy helicopter to private jet and then was taken to the U.S. for further treatment.

Said the Amazon spokesman:

“I sent this inquiry to Jeff and this is what he sent back: “Galapagos: Five stars. Kidney stones: Zero stars.”

Ok, that’s really funny, considering.

And, as someone who had a scary international health mishap, I salute you, Jeff, and wish you a quick and easy recovery.

I imagine the underpaid worker bees at his digital sweat-houses don't have the luxury of calling upon the Ecuadorian Navy and a private jet for a Kidney stone rescue.

Steve would have toughed it out.

Any succession planning? Who does replace Bezos? Seems like another Gates or Jobs issues. Visionary founder is irreplaceable?

His facial expression is what you would do if you did have kidney stone.,,.,
