And Now, My Thoughts On the AOL-Huffington Post Thing
Looks like AOL is still spending too much to replace me.
(Context, for those of you who lack it: For two years in the mid-90s I was AOL’s in-house writer/editor and did all sorts of various writing and editing gig for them. Then I was laid off and shortly thereafter AOL bought Time Warner. I liked to joke that AOL realized it still needed content, so Time Warner was what they got to replace me.)
(And for the record: I totally would have been willing to let AOL buy out Whatever for only $250 million. Think of the savings! Well, maybe next time.)
(No, I don’t know why I’m still using parenthesis at this point. Just go with it, please. Thanks.)
