I was reading an article on www.JimHillMedia.com tallying Eisner's final scorecard and it made a mention of him gutting the animation studios and WDI. I read a lot about the studios but didn't hear too much about the effects the end of his tenure had on WDI. How many people are they employing now? Are they outsourcing more now? Does anyone know anything about this?

New Post RE I don't know any numbers, but the current plan is to turn WDI into a managment company, and to outscource all of the actual design.

New Post nooo! I really do love the industry in general, but I always wanted to be a Disney Imagineer. News like this makes me sick to my stomach!

How sad!
The word on the street appears to be that Iger doesn't have compassion for imagineering either. And this at a time when Disney Imagineers have started spouting a series of books about Imagineering (e.g. "The Imagineering Way" and "The Imagineering Field Guide")... make money off of something that doesn't exist anymore in that way. Some day, they will realize the economic value of R&D... expensive in the short term (hard to convince investors that it's worthwhile), but the end results can be extremely profitable when you have new and exciting things for people to buy into (not just copies of what everyone else is making).
