The Netflix Zen Master Revisited

I was recently forwarded the response of the Netflix Zenmaster himself to my article about him. There were a few charming details I thought I might share with you. Apparently what I published was actually yesterday’s story. The Zenmaster has upped his game quite a bit since then. Nowadays content is stored on a 8TB file server he has setup in his home and streamed via wireless to all the computers and TVs in the house. It even allows for remote access through FTP. Here’s the truly golden bit: the movies have been edited to what they should have been. Annoying actors are completely edited out. As are superfluous scenes. Endings in particular are improved by this process. An example: his version of The Lord of the Rings has Frodo and Sam completely erased.
