Saving jobs at HMV and Blockbuster

If we were to skip back 10 years, make a little change. Do as Estonia has been doing (see the attached link) and teach our kids coding, would it be possible HMV and Blockbuster films may survived the competition?

If more of their staff / leadership had learnt to code, they’d have seen what was possible to set themselves up as a more digitally-fronted business.

Jobs wouldn’t have been lost just because they couldn’t compete on a digital front with their rivals, they’d have been made to fight it.
