I just read an article about the growth in Netlifx's streaming services, and it reminded me of the first time I ever streamed something with Netflix. My parents were Netflix customers back in the days when they actually mailed you DVDs, and I remember my brother sending me a link to a story about how they would be testing streaming services to augment the DVD business. The first day it was rolled out to customers I figured I would check it out, so I installed Microsoft Silverlight on my computer and watched Mad Max for the first time, one of the thousand or so movies available for streaming in 2007.

I'd like to say that I knew it would be the next big thing, but I really had absolutely no idea just how quickly it would catch on and how ubiquitous it would become. Of course I was 13 at the time, so not exactly a business mastermind. These days I actually hardly ever watch movies, and have never had a Netflix subscription of my own. What about you Oppo?
