Schadenfreude update: eToys has officially announced it will file Chapter 7 and liquidate in 5-10 days. And, as expected, Disney started Round 2 of layoffs from its cash-hemmoraghing operation, this time gutting ABCNEWS.com and ABC.com. Predictions as to who's next?

Anyone know how much they're selling their Santa Monica office for? Its a wicked-ass building, and right down the street from me.

And would it be foolhearty to try to start my own business within those hallowed walls? The commute would be great...

Trading on eToys was halted at $0.09/share. Could be a good bargain buy.
