I’ve been with my current company for a little over a year now. I was hired to manage the conversion of one of their main websites to a new Content Management System (CMS). While this may not seem like a huge challenge, when you factor in the current site supports 10+ languages and 20+ countries, I definitely had some learning to do.
Head on over to TheFoxIsBlack.com, where they have a short–but insightful–post regarding the thinking behind the recent redesign of Disney.com. Speaking from experience, I can attest to the challenges of reworking an existing site with that amount of content. It’s no small task and the fact they did it with only a 30 person team is even more impressive.
Jill and I did the BP on the Field for our last Braves game of the season on September 27, 2011. The Braves lost against the Phillies 7-0, we had a great time at BP. We managed to get a few baseball’s autographed for Carter (Antoan Richardson, Brian Jordan, Ryan Howard, and Jimmy Rollins).
Since we started going and watching the Atlanta Braves play, Carter has managed to get a nice collection of autographed baseballs. It’s not too hard to get an autograph at a game if you know where to go and when to get there. We’ve managed to pick up a few at meet-and-greets and got six at the 2011 Family Field Day. He’s met all the players below – with the exception of Chipper. We got that ball in a brown paper bag in a fund raiser for the Braves Foundation. We’re hoping to go to Spring Training in 2012 a get a few of the harder players then.
Here’s a recent MLB Fancave video featuring Atlanta Braves rookies Freddie Freeman and Craig Kimbrel. Fan Caver Mike O’Hara tells them about the postseason and they quickly scramble to clear their calendar in case the Braves make it to the postseason (they will).
It’s a great video if you’re a Braves fan – if you can get past the fact that both Kimbrel and Freeman were with the Braves in the 2010 postseason – a fact pointed out by my wife @ATLBravesBelle.
