This week when I was reading about all the trouble that Netflix is experiencing with their pricing, it got me thinking about all of their success and how they got their start. Did you know that back in 2000, Netflix founder Reed Hastings went to Blockbuster and proposed running an online brand for them? They laughed at him, so he went out on his own. Now look at all that has transpired. Blockbuster is going sneakers up, while Netflix has become the single largest source of web traffic in North America this year.
