Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Charlie Rose

Caught Netflix CEO and founder, Reed Hastings on Charlie Rose the other night.

Great interview, with some very interesting insights on new media business models and the future of "the cloud". In fact, Hastings' comments on the cloud and Amazon's online services seemed to echo this short and sweet post on the cloud's bullish future from Phil Pearlman.

It turns out Hastings was a guest at Charlie Rose's table before, back in late 2005. It will be interesting to check out that interview as well to compare how Netflix and streaming media have evolved since that time.
