@jalcine@todon.eu I don’t think that it was purely a tech thing - the Sears Catalog was discontinued in 1993, and Amazon was founded in 1994. They were born a catalog company, but their executives of the 80s and 90s tried to turn them into a mediocre financial services company, failed at that, and to the end were absolutely convinced, at the dawn of the internet, that people really wanted to go into their stores.
