Netflix's Reed Hastings Being Interviewed by Charlie Rose (from 2005 and 2011)

I have been researching Netflix (NFLX) lately and checked out some Charlie Rose interviews with Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix. One of the interviews is from December 27, 2005 and the other one is from earlier this year.

Although his star has faded recently, Reed Hastings is one of the visionaries in Silicon Valley. Not only did he build up Netflix, a DVD rental and video streaming service, but he is also very knowledgeable about technology. If you are interested in technology, media, or education—he has some thoughts on education—check out the 2005 interview. I found the 2005 interview quite insightful and it is quite impressive to see him hit the targets his laid out back then.

The recent video from May 4, 2011 is more narrow and is probably best for those who are interested in media, online streaming, and technology. Unfortunately, it seems that Charlie Rose doesn't allow recent content to be embedded so click on this link for the 2011 interview.

As usual, Charlie Rose, arguably the best interviewer in America, shows his skill with excellent interview questions. He cuts off Reed Hastings a few times, in order to keep the discussion going, but overall, the questions were great.

This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more
than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
