Looks like I was wrong about the Zappos acquisition

Last summer when Zappos was sold to Amazon there were rumors the VCs forced the sale.

I thought otherwise and shared my thoughts at the time. Also, in that post a commenter linked to a WSJ article where Tony Hsieh said he wasn’t forced to sell.

But now it seems otherwise.

And now that WSJ has been removed

I’m confused. 

Update: Dan Primack just gave me the correct WSJ link
