On my recent Florida vacation, I managed to wrangle a meeting with some high ranking officials at Disney World.  They wanted me to wait until today to release this news as they are working furiously with Microsoft to arrange a strategic merger.

Disney has been dominant in the media for family entertainment for decades.  They also have the theme park market sewn up quite nicely and have recently moved into the cruise and adventure vacation markets.

One are which they have been eying is the online, social media market.  After exploring possibilities with Google, Facebook and Twitter, executives approached Microsoft to see what they could work out together.

Needless to say, Microsoft was very excited at the prospect of a little Disney Magic to help them move Bing to the top of the search engine world.  So talks began in earnest in December of last year.

What is expected to be announced today is a joint venture tentatively called MicroDisney.  This will result in the formation of a social media site based upon the Disney experience but powered by Microsoft.  It will be closely tied to Bing for search.

MicroDisney will also be leveraging the Disney properties to help generate ad income with electronic advertising being added to all the Disney theme parks, resorts and vacation properties (including the cruise lines).

“This is just the beginning,” my contact told me.  “We’re looking at adding live ads to Disney media products as well.  We’ve incorporated Microsoft adCenter into the Blu Ray and DVD’s that are coming on the market.  And there is an interactive component to it that will allow them to chat with other viewers watching the movie and send messages to various social media sites right from their DVD players.  With Microsoft’s help, we’ve found a way to use JScript to push adCenter content onto existing DVD’s that people have in their homes.”

Unfortunately, they still haven’t figured out how to add this functionality to VHS tapes, but they say they have some promising technological advances that may help with that.

All I can say to that is “I Slap Floor”.


Recycled ElectronsHave you ever wanted to create a warning label that was worded just the way you want?  Well, now there is a web site that allows you to do just that.  Warning Label Generator to the rescue!

All you need to do is select the warning label, icon and message.  Then press a button.  “Presto Chango!”  Out comes your warning label ready to save to your hard drive.

You will need to right click on the image that is generated and save the file to your hard drive (usually “Save Image As” or something similar — depending on which browser you’re using).

Make sure that you give a descriptive name because each label is named warninglabel.jpg by default.

You can do lots of fun and silly stuff with this — see the ones that I came up with!

Please Curb Your Giant Lizzard

You can even use it to create actual warning labels if you really need to get serious –but who wants to get serious?
Employees Must Wash Hands After Reading Cookie Crumbles 8=)Let’s see what you can come up with!  Create some labels and put them on your web site, or Flickr or where ever you share photos.  Then give us the link in the comments.  Let’s get creative!

sidewalkends2Everyone has seen a 404 page on the web. You may not have known it was a 404 page, but that is what the “Error, page could not be found” pages are called by us pros. Each site can create its own version of this page (I guess the LoneWolf has to get busy and do something creative here too 8=) and some are very creative and funny.

This is one of the funniest ones I’ve come across and I think you’ll all like it too:

Make sure to check out the site while you’re there. They’ve got some fun images to check out.

If you have found any clever 404 pages out there share them in the comments!
