In 2011 Netflix offered streaming and DVD rental services, however, they thought it would be a good idea to divide them by creating Qwikster. The idea was to make two different websites for these services, Netflix for streaming and Qwikster for DVD rental. This would mean that costumers would have to create two different accounts for these services and also have two different subscription plans, which would lead to a high total price. After receiving harsh criticism, the re-branding was immediately shelved.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
