Amazon 2014Q2 marginalia

I took a look at Amazon’s recent earnings call transcript. Not as details-rich as CA’s, and more widely covered, but some little bits and pieces here.

See the stand-alone HTML file in my dropbox share, and the raw markdown file if you prefer that.

I’m still looking for a better way to render there if anyone has ideas.

While reading through CA’s recent quarterly conference call transcript, I thought I’d try out an idea I had this morning: using CriticMarkup to DIY what Genius.com does: annotating content. It worked OK, except I didn’t invest time in getting the HTML output right, so it looks kind of crappy – you can see the raw markdown file as well.

I actually tried using Genuis.com as well, but it started acting goofy so I gave up.

I’d love to be able to do more of these, but I need to get the publishing part right. The HTML is actually pretty simple, I just need a good stylesheet and (I’m guessing) some JavaScript. Any takers to help out?
