It feels like this article is purposefully avoiding back-linking to Starship Technologies website https://www.starship.xyz
Could have Amazon acqui-hired Starship Technologies instead of Dispatch? The reason is probably that Dispatch is backed by Andreessen Horowitz.
This doesn’t feel meritocracy to me. It feels Silicon Valley is building an inner circle where they only invest in each other. Techcrunch seems part of it avoiding back-linking and SEO gains for Estonian based Starship Technologies.
Is this article just content marketing to publicize Amazon and Dispatch?
amazon's "house" is slang for "wareHOUSE full of startups amazon bought for an aggregate purchase price of $204 million to acquire technologies and know-how to enable Amazon to serve customers more effectively"
