A catch phrase will go here soon.

Yes, it's true… I'm leaving AOL.


TechCrunch broke the story (less than two hours after I told everyone here), and the New York Times confirmed it with me by phone this afternoon.

I’ve got a lot to say, but I’m thinking that I’ll just talk about it on the final episode of the Gillmor Gang podcast–which we happen to be doing tomorrow (crazy coincidence I know).

Your pal,


PS – Thanks to everyone sending emails, IMing, and calling.

Update: Fun times from Hugh… and my partner Brian Alvey always has quip ready to go!

    [...] I bet someone at AOL is asking that question right now. [...]

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
