Via Cameron (I've got to start branching further and/or writing more original stuff before these assorted daily web log pages just become one big tangled incestuous mess), comes this report that companies like MathSoft, Zapata, and (cigar retailer) International Industries are seeing jumps in stock prices in the 30% gain because of announcing associate's programs with Amazon. Who are the morons buying this stock? Want to see what one extremely successful web site makes from Amazon's associate program (although all proceeds are donated to animal hospitals)? Check out Philip Greenspun's Amazon logs at http://photo.net/wtr/thebook/amazon/. One week in November Amazon got 3550 hits, which resulted in 29 direct orders and 93 indirect orders, for a whopping total of $158.32 in referral fees.
