Reed Hastings quotes :
Stone Age. Bronze Age. Iron Age. We define entire epics of humanity by the technology they use.Reed Hastings
In fact, technology has been the story of human progress from as long back as we know. In 100 years people will look back on now and say, 'That was the Internet Age.' And computers will be seen as a mere ingredient to the Internet Age.Reed Hastings
About half my work in education is U.S. political reform around school districts and charter schools, and creating more room for entrepreneurial organizations to develop. And about half on technology, which I look at as a global platform.Reed Hastings
What's got me excited about the education space is the growth of the Internet over the next 10, 20, 30 years.Reed Hastings
