Back to the future on that April Fools Day 2009.
(i’m writing this post on November 25, 2017)
The original post, “today”, was too “Disney” to keep public, so i deleted it and many others to err on the side of caution because Disney and Disney Institute had no social media policy.
i over-focused and over-committed on keeping it admirable and never crossed any lines – and was never asked to delete a thing.
Here’s the thing though, with no tangible rules, there was the perceived danger that a less progressive Disney leader could over-react and have a knee-jerk reaction.
Even though the odds were low, they weren’t zero, so i proactively went first.
There was no way of knowing what began today (April 1, 2009) as a 100-day, self-imposed writer’s boot camp would morph into an eight-plus year run.
