The crew at 37 Signals have sold… er… part of 37 Signals! Check out the blog post over at SvN.

If they weren’t real enough, they now have a personal investment from Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos and his investment company.

Will this be the end of “Getting Real” and the 37 Signals philosophy? I don’t think so, but I am a little puzzled about the announcement. They’ve been apparently been fending off VC companies for a while; I guess they just got an offer they couldn’t refuse.

I have to say, if Jeff Bezos wanted to invest in our company I definitely wouldn’t say no!
