Congrats AOL

By - December 09, 2009

AOL was finally set free today, years after it should have been. Congrats to the AOL team and Tim Armstrong, and I imagine, to the Time Warner folks who managed to destroy so much value by blaming everything on the merger in the first place (sure, it was a bad deal, but man, AOL was not the reason Time Inc. went south!).

Read my rant asking Time Warner to set it free back in March of 2004 here.
