Quote of the Day – Netflix CEO Reed Hastings

Every entrepreneur is a Steve Jobs wannabe. I was as guilty of that as anybody.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on his abandoned attempts to build a hardware box to let subscribers watch movies online. (By the way, one of the conference rooms in Netflix’ headquarters is called Paheli, after the Shahrukh Khan-Rani Mukerji Bollywood movie.) Source: Wall Street Journal, June 23, 2009.

    Oh, Are there conference rooms which are called – ‘Villu’, ‘Aadhi’, ‘Aegan’, ‘Thoranai’, etc?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Probably not (that’s why Netflix’ stock is still trading at around $40 in a down market).

    But when Reed Hastings invites us to the Netflix HQ, we’ll be sure to check if there are toilets named Villu, Aegan, Thoranai… 😉

    Anyway, there’s some hope for Kollywood because Vijay is said to be contemplating an entry into the political arena, which will presumably mean less time for movies.

    Sweet Nirvana.
