Watch this interview with Amazon's Jeff Bezos from 1999

In 1999, 60 Minutes "wangled an invitation" to visit Jeff Bezos at his humble Seattle office. Amazon was just five years old at the time but already had a stock market value of $30B. They sent correspondent Bob Simon to Amazon's headquarters which was located near a pawn shop and a "porno parlor." Simon likened the space to a "college dorm" and gave billionaire Bezos a hard time about his desk (a door with 4x4 legs) and his car (a modest Honda sedan).

Is it me or does Simon seem to be mocking Bezos?
