instead of an unrealistic purchase of MSN (I doubt msft will ever let it go), AOL should focus on purchasing JOOST.

The way I look at it... sell off the old way of distribution, and enter the new way.

Good idea!

I'm still an AOL user, if that's any consolation. I even pay for the subscription.

"if/when Joost is owned by one of the big media companies, it will lose its status as a neutral "Switzerland" BigMedia solution"

true... but then again, so will ClownCo when it goes live. (a BIG 'when') and Big(old)Media is rejecting "Switzerland" w/their procrastination toward partnering w/YouTube/Google. (and ultimately delaying potential profits)

we must 'wait and see'... i guess.

Given Google's acquisition of DoubleClick, I'd think that Yahoo's ad network looks a heck of a lot more attractive than AOL's traffic to Microsoft. Even if Yahoo's ad system isn't as efficient as Google's, it's bigger than anything else out there and there's always the possibility that Panama may eventually work. Plus, does Microsoft really have much choice at this point if they want to play/stay in the ad game?

For what it's worth (as a Valleyite myself), I doubt that promising startups will be eager to become part of the "new" AOL because of AOL/TWX's culture, history, audience, and the East Coast management structure.

My betting card would look like this:
-- Microsoft will buy Yahoo out of desperation.
-- Google will eventually buy Facebook at some outrageous price north of $2 billion
-- Either eBay or Google will buy Monster
-- Yahoo will be busy buying as many small companies as they can get their hands on, if only to get the engineers.

Big Media is in trouble.
This can get you six-figures in wealth. Free, Apology-Money, and, Founders stock, paid directly to you, due to the Largest Boycott in History. Congress will actively-support iBoycott. Congress will say, on TV every day, that you-must-get-your money. HERE’S WHY: iBoycott requires that Big Media create three satellite-TV channels, as the nation’s gifts to Congress and the National Committees. To own-and-operate: 1. Congress TV Channel, 2. Republican Party TV Channel, 3. Democratic Party TV Channel. Boycott target is a fast-food, TV advertiser. To please America, it invites the 100 largest TV advertisers to meet publicly on the nation-stunning scandal-crisis.

Big Media’s nation-horrifying mistakes: Silence about (1) genocide of 3,000,000 Black Christians in south Sudan; plus Darfur. (2) Iran’s announced plans for Holocaust II. You can get six-figures in Remorse-Apology money, and, stock. HERE’S HOW: iBoycott requires the largest public stock issuance ever. To reward genocide-Abolitionists like you. You can get free, Founders stock in Federal Beneficial Automatic-IRA SportsBOND Commission when issued. A major boycott is the most powerful social instrument known to history.

Reserve potential $1,000-a-day in National Honor Awards to you, in Money, and, Stock: for one Count-me-in email from a pal. Takes 2-minutes-a-day. $10,000-a-day for you for Count-me-in emails from 10 pals. Reserve $100,000-to-$1,000,000 for you. Friends can do the same. Free. No fees, no payments. Not-one-penny-ever. No tricks. No need to have a blog site. Apologies if this money-power comment is off topic. Get six figures in wealth: see WALL STREET, at The Street’s Big Blog: http://biggorilla.typepad.com

The most sensible big-net-company acquisition/merger candidate is MSN. A combined AOL-MSN would dominate online communications, and, together, would have the scale and clout that each company alone currently lacks. The integration, management, and long-term growth strategies, of course, would be a nightmare :)

Matthew Karnitschnig of the WSJ kicks off the morning with a Twilight Zone piece about how Time Warner may not dump AOL after all, but instead sell off cable and "double down" on the Internet by buying another big net company. Great subject !!!
