I'm sure by now you've heard the news: the Huffingtonpost is being acquired by America Online (AOL). This is a huge deal. With the merger, both companies will have a combined 117 million unique visitors in the United States, and 250 million around the world. Yes, many more people will read the work of the thousands of bloggers who contribute to the Huffingtonpost. Very exciting, to say the least.
This announcement was made yesterday during the Super Bowl. Below is an interview with Huffingtonpost founder and editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington, and the CEO of AOL. It lays out the vision that this merger hopes to accomplish.
