Yeah, AOL has this dumb idea they can just reconfigure garbage and be fine. So, they're going to double their editors from 500 to 1000, hire more "journalists" ( glorified scrapers ), and ramp up their tens?/hundreds? of thousands of freelancers ( glorified scrapers ).
So dust off yer stuff and take a shot on a hasbeen on a big multibilliondollar homestretch to oblivion.
As Cope noted on Pandora, people no longer want to scuba dive, they want to surf good waves ( good waves, the key operative phrase, like the Economist [ not my cup of tea, but at least they think and put out original stuff for people that want their thinking pre-digested, and they've been wildly successful at it ] ).
Steve aint gonna save a free press - They gotta do that themselves.
I never liked AOL , seems to me to be a private country club of sorts , so your sorta stuck inside that umbrella , and that was when they first came out like AOL 1.0 . Went there after I was using CompuServe and felt trapped like a rat .
