You logged onto the site, selected your favorite shows and let the service keep up with what you miss in the real-world, for most almost everything. Being able to maintain your favorite shows in a single location and watch them from anywhere was a huge shift in how we consume media. Not quite as life chaning as the MP3 but...

They would eventually raise over $200K — the power of the Internet, and all that. Oddly enough, looking back, it now reminds me a bit of The Hobbit.
