What I am going to do next…

On Monday morning I’ll be down in Burbank, CA at the Walt Disney Studios getting ears fitted for my new job. I’ll be working in the Disney Interactive Media Group as Director of Advanced Technology. The advanced technology group has a fairly broad scope, and a few of the things that we’ll be looking at include devices such as tablet computers / e-book readers, HTML5, and cloud computing fabrics. The world of media is being reshaped by technology, and I am excited to have the chance to help Disney navigate those changes.

The Disney Interactive Media Group is located in downtown Seattle, a few blocks from the ferry terminal. So after nine years of working at home, I’ll be going to work in a “normal” office setting. I had several work at home offers, but I have been feeling restless about working at home, so I’ve decided to shake things up a bit on that front. Seattle locals, I’d love to catch lunch or coffee with you.

    What fantastic news, Ted! You are more than capable to look after Disney’s technology! And for the record, I’d pay money to see you go to work with Mickey ears.

  3. That’s great news. Walt Disney Studio’s Digital Interactive Media will be in great hands!

    Awesome, Ted!

    I just took a new job at Adobe, and I will also be spending more time in a real office. 🙂

    I second the call to see you working with mouse ears. My daughters would think you were cool if they saw it, so I will have to add to the request and ask that you wear mouse ears when you walk by our house. 😉

    Don’t tell Tim Bray. He doesn’t like the Mouse Business. 🙂

  18. […] All-stars were all over this, and Ted Leung who’s still there (I believe [Update: actually, he's gone too]). The Spring people have a lot of optimism around Groovy. Along with finally nailing down slimmer […]

  19. […] What I am going to do next…Ted no longer at Sun/Oracle. The dynamic language crew is further reduced. […]
