Mickey Goes Open Source

Walt Disney Animation Studios recently launched an open technology site where for the first time they are giving the general public access to some of the innovative technologies, talks and white papers developed in their studio.

It will be interesting to see if this new openness is going to extend to any other areas of their creative teams and process.
