Do you remember when Amazon started as an online book seller? The Seattle-based company has come a long way and is now a major player in e-commerce thanks to the vision of CEO Jeff Bezos. His savvy has made Bezos one of the richest people in the world.

While the billionaire usually shys away from television interviews, he recently sat down with Hanson Hosein, the director of Digital Media at the University of Washington.
