There Goes the Internet

We all shut down our laptops for a few hours to watch the Superbowl and this happens. Late last night, AOL acquired the Huffington Post for $315 million and now basically runs the whole internet. AOL has been busy recently. They launched, their attempt to make community newspapers obsolete, and bought Tech Crunch to keep up with the world of technology. As a result of the merger, AOL’s expected to fold their own not-so-popular blogs like Politics Daily and Daily Finance. Reactions to the merger across the World Wide Web seem pretty dismal.
