Reed Hastings, NetFlix CEO, gets it right

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings
Here's a video I shot at a NetFlix company party way back in the early days, back around March of 1999.  Kind of fun to relive the glory days of the Internet bubble.

At the end of the video, you can see a brief bit from Reed Hastings, CEO of NetFlix, when I asked him about the future of the company.  What's remarkable is that he knew this was the future way back then, and he knew he'd have to wait until the time was right to realize his vision.  Now we're here and he's done it.  Congratulations Reed!

That's the kind of quality you want in a CEO.
