Loving innovation, that’s something for me, isn’t it? So, I embarked with very little description and started thinking at how we could build what we were looking for. I have to explain you that my piece is part of a larger project, an expansion of something that has been done a while ago, a new version.

On the eve of the new "House of Cards" season, what could be more timely than an interview with Netflix VP of IT operations CIO Michael Kail. Two things about Netflix I find amazing: The company has a mere 1,400 employees and a whopping $426 a share stock valuation. The second thing is how Netflix - struggling a mere two years ago - reinvented itself where something like one in four Americans subscribes to it.
