Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg called this Netflix presentation “the most important document ever to come out of the Valley.” Well, that might be overstating it a little but it made a big impact on me when I read it, partly because it elegantly expresses many of my own thoughts and explains why some of the things I’ve done in the past haven’t worked out so well.

Of course, culture doesn’t come out of a PowerPoint presentation in the same way that political power doesn’t grow out of the barrel of a gun (whatever Mao said) but it certainly concentrates the mind wonderfully.
