Happy Birthday Rachel Lindzon

Rachel turns 20 on Saturday.

I spent the day with her today in San Diego. We ran errands, had some sushi for lunch, hit the Apple store and went to see a movie.

I took this picture today of her and I at lunch today and posted it to Instagram:

It’s just another picture of course, but what was cool was a comment from Werner Vogels (CTO of Amazon) who remembered Rachel from a boat ride we all took in Amsterdam 7 years ago:

I remember a boat ride in Amsterdam with a super-smart 12 (or 14?) year old. Congratulations!

We both remember Rachel quizzing him about the Kindle as Rachel is a voracious reader.

Rachel remembers too of course.

Long live Rachel and of course Amazon.
