Why isn’t Netflix scooping up all the truly great video store employees?

Dennis spent 25 years of his life becoming a knowledgable expert in everything movies. Streaming has a curation problem. Seems like a no-brainer to scoop these people up.

In the last days of the store, daily life at the store got pretty intense. Longtime customers were bereft. We tried to comfort them, explaining how our owner had ensured that our whole collection would soon be available at the public library — for free, even! It didn’t help much. Almost to a one, they had the same reply: “But you won’t be there to help us.”
