Disney after Pixar? - [9:58 AM]

CNN Money: "According to a report in Thursday's Wall Street Journal, Disney is in serious talks to buy Pixar, the animated studio led by Apple founder Steve Jobs." - Well... I don't know how to feel about this one. It could go a few ways I guess. The worst, and most likely, is the destruction of Pixar's movie making culture and values, just as Disney destroyed its own animation studio(I'd love to link to "The Rise and Fall of Disney Animation in the Modern Era", but the site has been scuttled.) The best scenario is Steve Jobs becoming a top dog at Disney and hopefully one day becoming THE top dog. Disney was once a great place and it could be once again. They need a visionary like Jobs, not another watered down suit.
