Disney redesigns website for 3rd time in five years

From a just-published New York Times story:

Disney's struggles online underscore how difficult it is for traditional media companies to compete in this arena. Challenges include the pool of available talent. If you are a prominent technology executive, or a creative young designer, you are more likely to join Google or found a start-up, not toil deep inside a media conglomerate.


  1. Maybe Disney needs a blue ball.

  2. Kudos to Disney for being able to accomplish three redesigns in a time period that Gannett still struggles to complete one. And even more importantly, for its this…

    Disney Share Prices:

    G A N N E T T Share Prices:
    0ct 19, 2007 $41.87

  3. Just that same 3 year time period USAT has gone through four SVPs, three publishers, two editors, two CMOs, and countless VPs of marketing. I say Disney is way ahead of the game.

  4. Why is Susie Ellwood still here?

  5. thanks for sharing..
