We have two special exclusive articles to share with you this week!

  1. We all know that Netflix has changed the course of movie-watching but you might not know that the birth of Netflix is a very Santa Cruz story. Marc Randolph, Co-Founder and first CEO of Netflix, has a book about the birth of Netflix coming out today! Fortunately, Marc (who still calls Santa Cruz home) agreed to share with me some local intrigue -- including the start of his friendship with Reed Hastings -- about the early days of Netflix.
  2. Jane Technologies recently secured $21M in Series B funding. What comes next? CEO Socrates Rosenfeld doubles down on Santa Cruz and shares what he sees on the horizon for the startup.

Enjoy those two stories and lots more. Scroll down and start reading!
