Photography, Cycling and the Internets

Thanks for the great time at BayCHI

Tonight I had a great time talking at BayCHI.  I was surprised to see a full house for my presentation.   I was encouraged by the enthusiasm from everyone and for asking such great questions.  Daniel Russell’s talk on how people search at Google and use search engines in general was also very fascinating.  The two talks had a great synergy for an evening on the similar and yet distinctly unique development approaches of Netflix and Google.    Again, thanks everyone for the great time.

    It was a great talk, Sean. I really enjoyed the presentation.

    I had a question that evening, but there were so many people asking questions that I didn’t get to ask mine.

    I noticed that on Netflix.com, you guys put the browsing navigation column on the right-hand side instead of on the left. Is there any reason to doing it that way? Is it because more people directly interact with the content and less people use the browsing navigation column?

    Thanks.

  4. Sean,

    Another round of thanks for a great presentation. Would it be possible to get a copy of the PPT deck used during the presentation?

    Thanks!

  6. How people search at Google does include some strange things like typing in ‘www.seankane.com’ or, ‘peoplesearch.com’ and I’ve even been able to generate huge traffic with something like: ‘socialsecurity.com’

    Additionally, the mis-spellings number in the millions daily with these new light-touch keyboards we all use.

    Just thought I’d share these things for you Netflix folk. I used to be in the affiliate program. I’d say try these keywords: ‘Netfli’ and ‘etflix’ You may be surprised. Thanks Sean, from Australia.
