A catch phrase will go here soon.

Is this the end of AOL?


Looks like AOL is going to spin off the dialup business, and it’s been stated that they are putting all the valuable assets into Avenue A, an advertising platform they will spin out.

What’s left of “AOL” after that? AIM, AOL email, some content sites…. does that mean that AOL is going to go away as a brand? Feels that way.

    Myself and many other have canceled their AOL accounts and opted for free service.Who useds AIM anymore anyway? It’s days are numbered as an Internet dinosaur.

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.
