Reed Hastings The Netflix CEO brings video streaming to Canada, shaking up the cable industry
Sep 25, 2010 | The Globe and Mail. pg. F.2 | John Lorinc.
Having upended the video-rental industry (Blockbuster, following years
of decline, filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. this week), Netflix moved
into streaming in 2007. This shift puts the $1.7-billion-a-year (U.S.)
firm in direct competition with the cable and satellite sector, with its
video-on-demand offerings. Consumers can stream Netflix's huge library
of movies and TV shows through their game consoles or computers.

‘Design thinking’ strengthens brands
May. 20, 2010 | The Globe and Mail | Rasha Mourtada. A
holistic approach is at the centre of design thinking, a philosophy that
refers to applying design principles to business. It encourages
business leaders to explore solutions by imagining what could be, rather
than what they know.

Mr. Perri partly credits design thinking with the success MHz has had
since its launch in 1993. What started as a traditional design agency
producing packaging and promotional material has morphed into a
strategic digital marketing firm. Along the way it has received
international awards for its innovative marketing techniques, and its
roster of clients includes such names as Rogers and Research In Motion.

Design thinking helped his firm adapt to new technology, says Mr. Perri,
and to work across multiple media, from print to television advertising
to social media.
