AOL buys Weblogs, Inc.: What's in it for me

Another acquisition, and though not nearly as big as that other one, it leaves me asking that same question:

What’s in it for me?

I’m a frequent reader of many of Jason’s blogs, and I’m not convinced that they’re going to keep their edge. I’m certainly going to start looking for alternatives.

I completely understand why Jason chose to take the money—after all, he made a promise, and it sure must be nice to see a 7 or 8 figure balance on your bank account.

But it’s way too early. We need the media industry to be disrupted real bad, and it’s just not going to happen from within. So this crosses another potential disruptor off the list, and we’ll have to rely on others to do the job. Nick, I’m looking at you.
