Rob: Regarding Job, Blog, and life...on the inside-out:

It isn't that people aren't listening (aka. reading). Just that they aren't usually reading when we expect them to.

I find some of your thoughts right on, though I haven't read many. The fact is, I came across your blog by searching the web for "I work for Netflix." Purely selfish on my part...or shrewd, if you prefer.

Are all men created equal? No: I'm not half as good looking as my brother or half as "intellugunt" as my father. My wife and kids love me, and for that I'm thankful and content.

Keep blogging and if it wouldn't be a breach in trust to Netflix...I'd love to talk about networking with some people on the inside of a great company.
