During my work at emuse I got somehow familiar with some of the technologies in Netflix. They have an interesting recommender, and make contests to enhance it too, then I try to follow their adventures.

Some time ago I found a presentation about the culture in Netflix done by one of their executives as a stack in SlideShare, and I would like to keep the reference around.

**[Culture](https://www.slideshare.net/reed2001/culture-1798664 "Culture")** from **[Reed Hastings](http://www.slideshare.net/reed2001)**
In my case I am probably lacking many of the conditions they like (I remember a story about Bill Gates saying that if he had to apply to work in Microsoft they would probably not hire him), but it is an interesting goal trying to achieve them even though I am not interested in working there.

And if I ever manage to have my own company again, for sure I will try to have a similar culture in place.
