As a San Francisco resident from 1999 to 2006, I recall, with fondness ... -- Webvan. The company blew its venture capital and IPO money on everything from television spots during the Oscars to a $1 billion warehouse and more than 100 swanky Herman Miller Aeron chairs. To make matters worse, former CEO George Shaheen walked away with a golden parachute that pays him $375,000 a year for the rest of his life.While I could not confirm it, I assume Shaheen, who turned 69 last month, still collects that check. In any event, under the radar since I discovered it in early 2011, Amazon made Webvan "part of the Amazon family." At least Webvan.com, which remains active today. You can order a whole slew of non-perishable grocery items via the Website just as you can Amazon.com. But now, if you live in select areas of the Seattle and Los Angeles metropolitan regions, Amazon gives you Webvan-style service, delivering everything from non-perishables to produce, meat and dairy. You name it. I live in Santa Monica -- part of Los Angeles County, but it's own city -- and Amazon offers "Fresh" in my zip code. In the past week, I have seen trucks on two occasions -- driving through my neighborhood and, as captured below, in Santa Monica's Downtown core.
