Wikipedia is a horribly addicting online element to participate it…I guess just as bad as blogging. I have been spending a good deal of time over at en.wikipedia.org working on editing several things disney, as well as general anti-vandalism and semi-admin type work. I will likely begin integrating wikipedia into the Disney websites I spoke about earlier, www.dlig.org and www.disneymg.com; as well as utalizing some of what I’ve learned from Wikipedia to apply those communal principals to those websites as well.

Here is a pet project that I’ve been working on for some time now, but nothing is publicly available, just the template of: www.dlig.org – which will be Disneyland Information Guide. There has been many websites come and go, and this one is designed to take advantage of the advances in database driven technology and it will dovetail into our other pet-project, www.disneymg.com which is a mobile interface for Disneyland (initially) and may expand beyond that. With fast, text based information optimized for skinny wap phones and other small format browsers, with the full information resource of the parent, www.dlig.org it should be powerful.
DLIG idea came around in 2006 when Tower of Terror was just opening at DCA. Expect more forward movement on these projects soon!
