VIDEO: KEN FLORANCE OF NETFLIX ON BINGE WATCHING, BUDDHISM, MUSIC & TECHNOLOGY

Meet Ken Florance, Vice President of Content Delivery at Netflix. We sat down to speak with him about how we get to binge watch all those pictures and shows from Netflix. How do they do that? As a kid Florance was more interested in literature, philosophy and music. How did he segue and chart this career in the tech industry?

And, then we switched gear and talk about his counter-culture lifestyle as a teenager and a young man. He was a huge fan of The Grateful Dead and traveled thousands of miles to attend their concerts around the USA. Florance is a practicing Buddhist and plays the sitar. What drew him to Buddhism? It was an interview by John MacLaughlin with the Dalai Lama that started his journey towards Buddhism and meditation. How did he come to learn sitar from Ashwin Batish of Santa Cruz?  Tune in to find out.
