MUMBAI: The Walt Disney Internet Group (WDIG) has appointed Eric Freeman as vice president, technology, with responsibility for the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Online.

Freeman will lead the charge in driving technology development of the web properties and new media activities for The Walt Disney company's theme parks and resort hotel properties, including information websites, e-commerce and online attractions.

Freeman returns to the Walt Disney Internet Group after a two-year stint with O'Reilly Media Inc., where he co-directed and co-authored the publishing firm's "Head First" series of technical reference books, including the award-winning Head First Design Patterns and the bestselling Head First HTML.

"We're thrilled to welcome Eric back to our team. There are few people with his level of credentials in theoretical and practical technology, and his forward-thinking abilities will be a valuable asset in helping us stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly growing and changing category," said Walt Disney Internet Group executive vice president and chief technology officer Douglas Parish.

Freeman originally joined the Walt Disney Internet Group in 2000, where he initially acted as a director in the company's portal division. He later served as director of engineering, driving development in the areas of broadband, wireless, media content distribution, wireless technology and content syndication. This includes co-inventing WDIG Motion, a proprietary, patent-pending Internet technology allowing broadband users to view high-quality video, embedded in standard Web pages, without impacting narrowband users' experiences.
