The Entire D6 Interview With Amazon.com's Jeff Bezos (1 of 4)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

Unfortunately, due to issues too complicated to go into, we have to post all the D6 interviews in several 15-minute parts (I know, I know).

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety in this column.

Here’s Part 1 of 4 of an interview Walt Mossberg did with Amazon.com’s President, CEO, Chairman and, oh yes, Founder, Jeff Bezos. (I will post one video part of the discussion with Bezos every day this week starting today and concluding Thursday.)

The e-commerce giant seems of be firing on all cylinders of late, along with making some innovative moves, such as the recent introduction of the e-book reader, the Kindle.

In this video, Bezos talks about why he has moved Amazon (AMZN) beyond the online retail business and the development of the Kindle and e-books.
