I had a very intersting meeting last week with Michael Jackson, the man Barry Diller has appointed as the head of interactive programming for IAC. He’d been in New York, the Valley, and LA trolling for new ideas. Seems he’s found one – this morning IAC announced they had bought a controlling interest in Connected Ventures, which runs CollegeHumor.com, among many other things. I’ve known and worked with Josh Abramson, one of the founders, at Boing Boing and FM. Congrats to him, and to IAC, which seems primed to do more deals like this one.
